Seconds after partaking of wine during a Catholic funeral mass, Father Miguel Flores is dead on the altar. Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained enough potassium cyanide to kill a rhino. And though the East Harlem neighborhood is a long way from the stone mansion she shares with her billionaire husband Roarke, it’s the holiness flying around St. Christobal’s that makes her uneasy.
The autopsy reveals faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo—and evidence of plastic surgery suggesting “Father Flores” may not be the man his parishioners thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that suggest identity theft, gang connections, and a deeply personal act of revenge, she hopes to track down whoever committed this unholy act. Until a second murder—in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers—knocks the whole investigation sideways…
Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another great book. #27 in the series. A priest dies at the altar during a funeral. Who could have done such a thing? Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas finds that the wine he drank had cyanide in it. Upon investigating we find out that maybe he wasn't the man everyone thought he was. They found he had a tattoo removed and had facial surgery. Then a second murder happens with another religious person. Is there someone out there going after churches? Meantime Eve is supposed to be getting ready for a bridal shower and you know her, she doesn't like girly things lol.
