When Montoya and Bentz arrive at the crime scene, they discover that the murdered nun, Sister Camille, is not an unknown victim. Montoya had dated her during high school. There’s an added c ...more

This was a very good read. Complicated, multi-layered murder mystery with a number of interesting elements and plenty of excitement.
When one of the nuns at St. Marguerite's is found garroted on the alter of the cathedral, wearing an old and yellowed bridal gown, the New Orleans police detective who catches the case is stunned to discover he knows her - went to high school with her right there in New Orleans.
It soon comes out that not only was the nun pregnant, she had been having an ...more
2 thumbs up and 4 solid stars!
No idea how this author made the NY Times bestselling author list. Her writing style is atrocious and subject matter contrived.
I must admit to lying about finishing it so I could review it. I tossed it across the room at the beginning of chapter 3, it was that bad
I really liked the Detectives assigned to the case, and I am looking forward to going back and reading more of the books they are in. I love the New Orleans setting. It real ...more

Both men have push themselves to find the killer as it is personal for Montoya he knew the nun and he needs to get to them bottom of it but he is not expecting the outcome.
Both men are new fathers and their wives worry about them but as you know they can't let go. The story was a bit slow in part but as I love the characters it was okay.

Devious had me turning its 439 pages as quickly as possible to find where the quirky characters and tale would take me. Add in New Orleans, a crumbling orphanage and the murders of nuns and you’ve got a read that translates to a lot of time curled up on the couch pursuing the “bad guys” right along with th ...more

So why did I continue reading – I have absolutely no idea. I would pick it up and read a little bit here and there hoping for a spark that would grab me, but that never happened.
