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 Convent’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 Abbey’s sexton is found
dead under an avalanche of gouda. Despite the reservations
of the local constable, Sister Agatha is convinced it’s
murder and the game is afoot.
Armed only with the notes she’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.
