"Engaging who did it to start new series"
Once she was known as Mary Naughton, an investigative
reporter, but a tragic event in her life set her on a new
path. She is now known as Sister Agatha an extern nun
living in the cloistered monastery of the Sisters of the
Blessed Adoration in Bernalillo, New Mexico. She is one of
two nuns who have contact with the outside world while the
rest of the sisters remain isolated dealing only with one
One day when Father Anselm is giving the sacrament to the
nuns, he has a seizure and dies. At first everyone thinks
he had a heart attack but it isn't long before it is
discovered that he has been poisoned. It is unthinkable to
Sister Agatha that anybody from the monastery could have
done such a horrendous deed but she uses the skills she
obtained as a reporter to prove to the police that the nuns
are innocent of committing murder.
Readers get an insider's look at a cloistered monastery and
will find themselves fascinated by a group of gentle women
who have chosen to cut themselves off from the world. The
audience will find it very entertaining to see the heroine
piece together who did it and why. The Thurlos have
another winning series to their credit.
