Blood coats the steps at St. Florentine Cathedral in Chicago, Illinois.
Lt. Damien Kaine stands over the mutilated body of Father Shri Mandahari. A note left by the killer indicates the Catholic Church is keeping secrets.
Someone wants those secrets exposed, and the Church will do whatever it can to keep that from happening.
Even if it means protecting a killer.
As the investigation unfolds, Damien finds himself and those closest to him in danger, and he will protect those he loves at all costs.
It's that desperation that puts him and his partner, Detective Joe Hagan, in a situation with deadly consequences.
All this leads to one question, can God protect His flock?
About the Author
I like planning murders. Fictional murders that is, so don't go reporting me to the police. Although there are a few people I wouldn't mind burying in a field somewhere, and most of them are in my family. But since I have a real fear of prison, I decided to put my BS in Forensic Chemistry and my experience in the Coast Guard as a Search and Rescue/Law Enforcement Petty Officer to work writing Crime Fiction. My books are a sexy, dark, edgy mashup of CSI, Motive, and Criminal Minds. Basically, they are character driven, have nasty killers in them, curse words and sex. All things that make for a good bedtime read.
I'm a mother of two teenagers. My husband and I are forced to share our house with them. We also live with three dogs Georgie, Gracie, and Bella, and one cat-Squeakers. I plot my escape daily. (Seriously, where the hell could I go that these kids couldn't hunt me down?)
My Italian familigia is loud and fun. You come to my house you'll mangia too much, beve too much and laugh till you pee your pants.
