In this seventh outing for amateur sleuth Sister Mary Helen and her coconspirator, Sister Eileen, the two nuns take time out from their duties at Mount St. Francis College when a wealthy widow, a benefactor of the college and dear friend, is the second victim of a local rapist-murderer. Despite the furious protests of the San Francisco police, Sister Mary Helen decides that they need a little divine intervention. Between juggling their regular duties, ducking the notice of the detectives on the case, and a plan to straighten out the life of a sad young librarian, the Sisters have their hands full. But as criminals, law enforcement types, and their fellow nuns have discovered, there's no stopping the pair when they feel their involvement is called for.

Professional reviews

"Two old nuns with a penchant for trouble take on a disturbed fat girl and the quest to find a killer/rapist. The law pursuing the perpetrator suffers severe setbacks. Sister Mary Helen and friend flutter about and arrive for the grisly conclusion. The tangled web of psychology, pathos, mystery and some religion that make up this chronicle would create a challenge for any reader. Conlin essays to put it all together as she tries on different voicing, all of which demonstrate excellent enunciation, as well as competent characterization. Drowning in the too-abundant writing, she valiantly breasts the author's love of adjectives. An abridgment might have helped her. S.B.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
