A PAGE-TURNING MYSTERY. WHAT SECRET PASSIONS DID A MURDERED NUN HAVE?

December 1959: Detective Jack Callum and the team are called to a local orphanage to investigate the murder of a young nun, Sister Bernadette. She has been stabbed repeatedly and her body violated.

The post-mortem throws up a massive shock, and suspicion falls on a handsome young priest who Bernadette worked closely with. More violence is unleashed as the dark secrets of these seemingly devout people are exposed. Powerful local people are determined that the scandal just go away. Jealousy, love, and loss will be revealed by DCI Callum's investigation.

Can Detective Callum get to the bottom of a complex and emotional case? You'll love finding out in this murder mystery set in the days before high-tech forensics and computers, where old-fashioned investigative skills still matter.
