‘Absolutely riveting - you won’t be able to put this down’ Mo Hayder

Two nuns are brutally attacked within the walls of their convent. There seems to be no shred of motive. But during the autopsy Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles discovers something entirely unexpected.

And when a second, heavily mutilated body is found and linked to the case, she and Detective Jane Rizzoli find themselves in the midst of a terrifying investigation that seems to implicate everyone.

Because who can really say they’re free from sin?

'All her pages suffused from lividity, Doc Gerritsen's morgue slab awaits you, reader ... Glorious deaths bursting with the guilty glow of sex.'

Kirkus Reviews

'Woven within the horror of this gruesome story is the old allegory of good versus evil, but by relating it through these two fascinating individuals, Gerritsen avoids clichés. Another captivating, horrific thriller in her extremely popular cannon.'
