In this seventh outing for amateur sleuth Sister Mary Helen and her coconspirator, Sister Eileen, the two nuns take time out from their duties at Mount St. Francis College when a wealthy widow, a benefactor of the college and dear friend, is the second victim of a local rapist-murderer. Despite the furious protests of the San Francisco police, Sister Mary Helen decides that they need a little divine intervention. Between juggling their regular duties, ducking the notice of the detectives on the case, and a plan to straighten out the life of a sad young librarian, the Sisters have their hands full. But as criminals, law enforcement types, and their fellow nuns have discovered, there’s no stopping the pair when they feel their involvement is called for.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Move over, Miss Marple, here comes supersleuth Sister Mary Helen, a nun with an unusual habit of solving murders.” San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle
“O’Marie delivers compelling characters and sophisticated plotting in her best effort to date.” Publishers Weekly
“If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting the crime-solving Sister Mary Helen and her feisty sidekick Sister Eileen, Death of an Angel is a good place to start. Deceptive gentleness masks a fierce strength, which Sister Mary Helen no doubt inherits from her creator, Sister Carol Anne O’Marie, who runs a shelter for homeless women in Oakland, California when she’s not giving religious mysteries a good name.” Amazon.com
“[There is a] depth to the novel beyond the level of a simple whodunit. Hard to put down.” Booklist
“Enough chilling suspense…to hold the reader’s interest to the finish. One of the author’s better efforts.” Kirkus Reviews
