A priest and a rabbi walk into a lesbian bar…
If something is unjust in San Francisco's Mission District, the Reverend Alma Lee will face it down. She leads her vibrant church of St. Giles' with compassion and sass. Her busy days involve match-making, meddling, and saving the city's beloved lesbian landmark, The Carlos Club. Alma meets the intriguing Rabbi Naomi Cohen there, and she's smitten.
Death comes to the church's door…
When the proprietor of The Carlos Club turns up dead on the steps of St. Giles', Naomi's brother is the number one suspect. She needs help exonerating him, and Alma's knowledge of the neighborhood makes her the perfect priest to solve the case. If only Alma's ex-boyfriend, homicide detective Cesar Garza will accept her help. She still feels the pull of their old connection, but she's convinced the sexy-smart rabbi is her perfect mate. . . Too bad Naomi is playing by different rules.
Can Alma solve the case before the murderer silences her forever?
About the Reverend Alma Lee Mystery Series
Meet the Rev. Alma Lee, the next priest-detective in a long line of clergy sleuths from Father Brown to Clare Ferguson, Brother Cadfeal to Sydney Chambers. Only, instead of a rural village, Alma's turf is San Francisco—gritty, gay, and glorious. Her methods border on the absurd, and she has more attractive admirers than anyone who's taken holy orders has a right to. If she's on the case, the murderer doesn't stand a chance.
