"The death of those people has nothing to do with me!"
Ellie Madsen longed to believe that, but what else could explain the attempts on her life? She was afraid, and though she knew the fear was separating her from a lost love, she was powerless to break free. It took the searing honesty of a desperately lonely teenager and the good sense of a maddeningly Irish priest to thrust her past her own emotional upheaval and into the cold light of reality. She wouldn't enjoy the fruits of the struggle, however, until she stopped trusting the one she wanted to love. If she faltered in this, she would die: it was as simple as that.

About the Author

Patricia Doherty has been writing sporadically since her childhood in Washington, D.C. In 1966, however, her husband Tony gave her a copy of James Agee's masterpiece, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which awakened a desire to write seriously. Eleven years later Pat slammed a mystery story shut in despair, declaring she could write better herself. Her husband challenged her to do it. The result was The Face of Evil, the first novel in the Dismas Shaunessey mystery series, which continues with The Sins of Moffat Square and Of Murder and Marigolds. Visitations of Grace, her collection of short stories based on minor characters in the Gospels, has received critical praise. She's also collaborated with Olympic pole vaulting champion Don Bragg on A Chance to Dare: The Don Bragg Story, his memoirs, as well as Kamp Olympik, an account of his summer camp for disadvantaged inner-city kids. In addition to interviews and feature articles for an opera newsletter, she's written compact disc liner notes, a novella, poetry, and children's stories. When her composer husband received a commission from the Contra Costa Children's Chorus for a major piece for its 30th anniversary season, Pat provided the text "My Voice," which is her favorite work.
