As with all good ST Patrick's Day Murder, it starts with a parade. This is one of my favorite Lee Harris books.
It is before Chris marries Jack and they are becoming a couple.

What can I say? I like that Christine Bennet (former nun turned parttime investigator) is smart and deliberate and doesn't play the damsel in distress.
Former nun Chris Bennett and her significant other Jack investigate the murder of a cop friend of Jack's.
