Part of the Mother Aquinas mysteries series
'Outstanding' Booklist'A savvy detective and a setting fraught with intrigue and tension' Publishers WeeklyNOT ALL FLOODS WASH AWAY SIN . . . Ireland, 1923. The country has been torn apart by the War of Independence and is now in the throes of sectarian violence and severe flooding.
But Mother Aquinas knows that not all floods cleanse the deeds of humanity . . . When a body washes up at her convent chapel dressed in evening finery, she immediately suspects foul play.
The overstretched police force may be ready to dismiss the case as accidental drowning, but strangulation marks on the girl's throat tell a grimmer story.
Mother Aquinas wants justice for the girl - and won't let a murderer slip away unpunished under the cover of war.
