A NoveleBook - 2014
Murder and religion collide in this compulsively readable police procedural by the bestselling author of Privileged Lives and Deadly Rich Suffer the children ... The first body is found in a hamper in the woods. Her feet were tied with a leather belt. There are traces of incense on her dismembered body, candle wax on her skin, and strange crumbs on her lips. As more butchered adolescent corpses turn up-- the victims of a serial killer whose signature is the communion wafer left in each one's mouth-- the evidence leads NYPD lieutenant Vince Cardozo into the sacred and moneyed world of Manhattan's exclusive parishes. Desperate to find the monster who preys on vulnerable runaways, Cardozo uncovers a conspiracy that reaches to the city's highest levels of power.
