Perfect for fans of G. M. Malliet and M. C. Beaton,
The Shadow of Death is divine entertainment from a
talented debut writer.
A charming and clever traditional mystery debut set at a
bucolic Welsh convent, The Shadow of Death introduces
Sister Agatha, a mystery-loving nun who finds herself in the
midst of a real-life murder case.
The sisters of Gwenafwy Abbey have cherished their
contemplative life―days spent in prayer, reflection, tending
the Conventâ€™s vegetable gardens and making their
award-winning organic cheese, Heavenly Gouda. Life seems
perfect, except for Sister Agatha, a die-hard mystery fan
who despairs of ever finding any real life inspiration for
her own novel. That is, until the Abbeyâ€™s sexton is found
dead under an avalanche of gouda. Despite the reservations
of the local constable, Sister Agatha is convinced itâ€™s
murder and the game is afoot.
Armed only with the notes sheâ€™s scribbled during her
favorite podcast, How to Write a Mystery Novel, as well as a
lessons learned from crime heroes ranging from Hercule
Poirot to Stephanie Plum, Sister Agatha leads the nuns of
Gwenafwy Abbey (and her unwitting sidekick, Father Selwyn)
as they begin a race against time to resolve the death of
Jacob, save the Abbey, exonerate a beloved postulant, and
restore the good name of their cheese.
