Inspector Jack Devlin investigates the Catholic Church in this thrilling new entry in the Edgar Award winning series.

When the mutilated body of a young nun is found stuffed in the trunk of a car, even the toughest cops in New York City are struck by the sheer horror of the crime. The young victim is a member of Opus Cristo, a highly controversial group within the Catholic Church, whose membership is rumoured to include some of the nation's most influential religious, business and political leaders.

Inspector Jack Devlin of the NYPD, experienced in working sensitive cases, is immediately assigned to investigate. But as Devlin and his team delve further, they realise this is no simple death. It is the first sign of a conspiracy of epic proportions. A secret organisation is responsible for a web of crime that extends to the highest reaches of the Catholic Church and every level of society. And when the cooperation of the NYPD is mysteriously withdrawn, Devlin discovers that not even the law remains uncorrupted by this conspiracy. Alone, Devlin and his team must face down two powerful and ruthless adversaries...
