Rueful Death: A China Bayles Mystery
Along with her friend Maggie, a former nun, China is looking forward to a relaxing retreat at a Texas convent. But her quest for a replenished spirit soon takes second place to a more earthbound pursuit: catching a killer. It seems that the mother superior has recently died - and although at first it was considered an accident, China quickly senses conflict in the convent...and suspects that the undercurrents of tension have already taken a deadly turn. China wanted nothing more than a bit of serenity. But now her soul won't rest - and the convent won't be at peace - until she identified the guilty party.
