Unknown to her, as she deals with two new murders that are brutal with really odd wounds on the victims, she is tied to someone else. This someone else is a timid, scared man, who happens to be Dr. Ellis Poe. Dr. Poe has not told about what he lived through, what he saw the night that Carmen's sister was murdered. Dr. Poe has spent his life burying himself in the Word, hiding in his boat when he can, and teaching Christian religion classes at the Seminary. His world is shaken when Carmen shows up in his office investigating a very painful and cruel murder. The victim happens to have been one of his students. This is followed up so fast by a second victim, one who has been beaten almost beyond recognition A Jewish man, who held a position in the church, has been dumped on the law of the Rabbi under whom he served.
Yes, it is "Easter" week, Passover, Resurrection Sunday is coming, and leading up to this...each week another person dies. The crimes are connected, but the killer is smart. There are no easy clues like there are in most cases you read or might see on TV. The victims are being killed with an intent and purpose that you might not see coming. This is the time that is going to heal Carmen, and Ellis and the other people involved, or it will take them all down with them.
This was a super good book, the kind you don't want to put down when you have to. The ending and the details are well written and leaves a message worth reading. This book was written well enough to make me hope I get to read another one by this author later on.
