A Shameful Murder by Cora Harrison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What the hell? I loved a book with an elderly Mother Superior as the main character?
Yes, I did. I couldn't believe it either! But this is a darn good historical mystery. It's the early 1920's and Rev. Mother Aquinas of Cork finds the dead body of a young girl. With the help of her former student (Police Srgt. Cashman) and a good doctor friend, the trio solves the crime. There are plenty of twists and turns that I found refreshing and I loved how the Rev. Mother was a gossip who knew all but told nothing. I got a real sense of Ireland, too, street floodings and all. I'm off to put the 2nd book in the series on hold now!
