Description

The priest lay on the bloodstained stones, his life drained from the wounds in his back....

In a walled garden surrounded by skyscrapers, Father Michael Birney met an unholy end, stabbed by an assailant who invaded his vespers prayers and then vanished as twilight overtook the big city. A stone's throw from the crime scene, a congregation of Satan worshipers chants its disturbing incantations -- an irony not lost on Detectives Carella and Hawes, who search among the cultists for a killer. But it will take more than a leap of faith for the cops of the 87th Precinct to expose the truth behind the deadliest -- and bloodiest -- of sins.

display_descriptionThere are a lot of unspeakable things that happen in the big city, and the murder of St. Catherine?s Father Birney is one of them. For Detectives Carella and Hawes of the 87th Precinct, finding the killer means taking a journey into the darkest corners of the city?s soul. The satanic cult near St. Catherine?s parish is the obvious first suspect?but not necessarily the right one. As the detectives investigate the priest?s life, they uncover blackmail, old grudges, and hidden motives. When everyone has a secret and the truth hides within the lies, Carella and Hawes must rely on their premier detective work to find the killer. This installment of the author?s famed 87th Precinct series is as deep and rich as they come, delivering the goods with unparalleled, brute emotional force.
