It’s been over a year since Giulia Falcone fled the convent, and her new case is the stuff of nightmares: she’s going back. Giulia’s former Superior General has hired Driscoll Investigations to confirm that the sudden death of Sister Bridget, a troubled young Novice, was a suicide in order to squelch a lawsuit. Did something drive Sister Bridget to desperation? Or was she murdered? Gathering every ounce of courage to confront her past, Giulia dons the dreaded habit—putting a serious damper on her budding romance with her boss, Frank—and returns to the Motherhouse to investigate. What she uncovers is less than holy . . .
