A Novena for Murder

Having been raised in a Catholic environment (12 years of Catholic school included) I was intrigued to see how a nun could be a detective. The story centers around a murder at a Catholic college in San Francisco. Sister Mary Helen is a retired num aged mid-seventies who recruits her fellow nuns to help her to investigate the murder of the history Professor because she believes that the police's chief suspect has nice eyes and couldn't be guilty.Sister Anne and Sister Eileen aid Mary Helen while Sister Therese starts a novena to St. Dismas (the patron saint of murderers) to get spiritual assistance. The interactions between the nuns and the police are entertaining and the story is a definite for those who like the old style as well as some religious reminders.
