When he acts in the name of God, his victims' faith could be their demise.
When a young woman is found dead on her bed, dressed in an old-fashioned nightgown with her hands clasped in a prayer position, Detective Kate Murphy is called to investigate her murder.
Before Kate and her colleagues can find the killer, another woman is found dead in the same position. Other than being Catholic, having blonde hair, and living in Boston, the women have very little in common. But one thing is clear: the serial killer has some twisted religious beliefs.
What is his motive? Who is he? And, most importantly, can Kate stop the murderer before he strikes again?
If you like serial killer books, complex mysteries, unexpected twists, and dramatic stories, then you'll enjoy the thrills that this page-turning mystery has to offer.

In this third book in the Detective Kate Murphy series, Kate is living with her boyfriend, Luke O’Brien and his mother Marjorie. Kate is called to the scene of a young woman who has been murdered and staged in bed holding a rosary. As Kate and her colleagues begin their investigation, another woman is found murdered and posed in the same way. There are no obvious connections between the women, so why have they been targeted? Kate knows that they are dealing with a serial killer and need to find him before there are more victims. Is the murderer someone who is killing based on his twisted religious beliefs?
