One dead nun, one on life support. An unidentifiable murder victim nick named "Rat Lady". So many possible sinners. All tied together in a logical and conceivable bow near the story's end.The leper victim plot seems familiar but not so much that it's crime novel trope.
I've only read a handful of the R&I books and it's interesting to see how many "facts" were changed in the series. ( )

Good book. Still trying to get used to the changes from TV show. ( )

These books just keep getting better. While not veering too far from the standard crime novel plot structure, this book still managed to give us a significant amount of backstory on Maura Isles, and one nice gem about Jane Rizzoli during a conversation with her mother. Can't wait to start Body Double. ( )

A young nun gets killed in the cloister. Soon there are found a lot of mysteries around this young lady. Why was she killed? What did the little girl see?

It was a great book. I didn't read the Rizzoli books in order, so with every book I read I understand a lot more about Rizzoli, her relationship with Gabriel Dean and her daughter. ( )

Kind of a filler in the series. The mystery took a back set, to moving the characters forward. Still enjoyable, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. ( )

Book description
Within the walls of a cloistered convent, a scene of unspeakable carnage is discovered. On the snow lie two nuns, one dead, one critically injured - victims of a seemingly motiveless, brutally savage attack. Medical examiner Maura Isles' autopsy of the murder victim yields a shocking surprise, but the case takes a disturbing twist. The body of another woman has been found. And someone has gone to a lot trouble to remove her face, hands and feet. As long buried secrets are revealed so, Dr Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, find themselves part of an investigation that leads to an awful, dawning realisation of the killer's identity...

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345458923, Mass Market Paperback)

Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the cloistered convent lie two nuns–one dead, one critically injured–victims of an unspeakably savage attacker. The brutal crime appears to be without motive, but medical examiner Maura Isles’s autopsy of the dead woman yields a shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille gave birth before she was murdered. Then another body is found, mutilated beyond recognition. Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes close to home–and toward a dawning revelation about the killer’s identity too shattering to consider.
