Blood Sisters: Katie Maguire by Graham Masterton

From the Publisher. Katie Maguire never thought Ireland’s nuns would need her protection…In a nursing home on the outskirts of Cork, an elderly nun has been suffocated in her sleep. It looks like a mercy-killing–until another sister from the same convent is found floating in the Glashaboy river. The nuns were good women, doing God’s work. Why would anyone want to kill them? But then a child’s skull is unearthed in the garden of the nuns’ convent, and DS Katie Maguire discovers a fifty-year-old secret that just might lead her to the killer…if the killer doesn’t findher first.

 

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. Masterton is pretty graphic so if blood, guts and brain matter aren’t your thing, you may want to pass on this series. That said, Maguire has a few cases going on here dealing with dead horses and dead nuns and her usual nemesis. This is a series that is best read consecutively as the plot is character driven in places and it ends with a cliffhanger. I especially liked the history of various saints covered in this one. Another good entry in the Katie Maguire series.
