Baker & Taylor
Sister Mary Teresa Dempsey and the other members of her convent find a connection between the victims of a serial killer wreaking havoc in suburban Chicago

Blackwell North Amer
Police investigator Richard Moriarity is searching for "Oscar," a serial killer who is menacing the peaceful streets of suburban Chicago. Amidst the hysteria, Richard meets Astrid - a stunning woman with an unknown past who wants to write a book on Oscar and the investigation. Against his better instincts, Richard agrees to help her.
Not far from the crime scenes, Sister Mary Teresa Dempsey and her peers struggle to piece the murders together. It seems that the world has grown hopelessly unsafe since the days when the Order ran their beloved College of Martha and Mary. Although the sisters still consider their convent home a haven it is not long before a visitor, young Mitzi Earl, is attacked outside its door. Mitzi survives to describe her attacker's face, but then is stalked to her death while under police surveillance.
When an alumna of the College of Martha and Mary is terrorized by the same killer, Sister Mary Teresa begins to see the curious connections between victims - and realizes that the mysterious Astrid may hold the key to the crime.

& Taylor

When a serial killer begins stalking the streets of suburban Chicago near the convent of Sister Mary Teresa Dempsey, the enterprising nun turns sleuth and begins putting together the clues to help police detective Richard Moriarity find the killer.
