THE BREAD OF TEARS
A 5-star review on Amazon UK from Eileen M. Thornton:
Rose runs a hostel for the homeless in London. One day, returning from
an engagement, she is horrified to find the body of Angela, someone she
had helped in the past, outside the hostel. The girl had been murdered;
the sign of the cross carved into her chest. Inside the hostel she
finds two other bodies, both brutally murdered. The police are called
and an investigation into the deaths begins.
As the story unfolds, we
learn that Sister Rose had been a policewoman in Newcastle upon Tyne, where she had
been attacked while working on a case... So traumatized by the events, she spent some time in
a convent to help her forget the horror she had been through. It was
during her stay at the convent that she turned to God.
... Sister Rose soon begins to help the
DCI investigate the murders. But, she also finds herself being drawn to
the man himself.
I really enjoyed this novel. There are several
twists and turns as it slowly leads the reader to a nail-biting climax.
must read for all mystery/thriller readers.
Thank you, Eileen!
