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.

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

J’ai eu un peu de mal à rentrer dedans, j’ai trouvé les deux premiers chapitres un peu confus, ce qui m’a fait laisser un peu tombé le livre. En le reprenant la suite était beaucoup mieux.
Il s’agit d’un thriller donc la romance n’est pas de premier ordre.
On y trouve (ou retrouve – pour celles qui connaissent la série) les inspecteurs Montoya et Bentz qui enquête sur le meu ...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.
