Read in July, 2012

Gerritsen writes a detailed and thorough murder mystery that has the reader on the edge of the couch hoping to reach the end. This escapade involves nuns, lepers, babies, and ex husbands as Tess and Maura must make choices about love and work. For some reason, I never associated lepers with India, and never fully understood the disease. Gerritsen explains the progression of the disease and the places where it sill exists. Gerritsen also delves into the community of an aging convent to show what happens to these women that have dedicated a life to God. Gerritsen explores many topics that seem taboo, such as a mother's devotion to a specific child. I am enjoying Gerritsen's novel and am reminded of the writing of Patricia Cornwell.
