Death Takes up A CollectionBook - 1999
Readers have come to delight in the murder-solving exploits of septuagenarian Sister Mary Helen and her cohort Sister Eileen, two nuns with a nose for nabbing killers. Publishers Weekly calls the Sister Mary Helen Mysteries "refreshingly different" and a "heady mix of humor and suspense." Once you meet this spry, clever sleuth, you'll want to make a habit of reading her adventures again and again. A corrupt clergyman meets an unholy death... Monsignor Joseph Higgins liked, along with wine and women, the finer things in life-so much so that he may have dipped into the church funds to finance his good tastes. But would that be reason enough to kill the crooked clergyman? Someone had poisoned the pastor-and there was no shortage of likely suspects, from his surly housekeeper to several prominent parishioners. Now Sister Mary Helen and Sister Eileen must delve into this sacrilegious slaying and bring a killer to justice.
