<p>A mystery novel of the contemporary Catholic Church in crisis.
<p>When Sister Megan McGrath is found murdered in the sacristy at Santiago Church, fear falls on the parish like the winter snow. Is the pastor, Father Shannon, responsible for her death? Why was she murdered in such an unusual fashion with a strange pole decorated with red ribbons and beads piercing her heart? Why are the convent sisters engaged in bizarre practices? As the master storyteller Josué Raúl Conte unfolds all the evil that is hidden at Santiago, you will wonder what happened to make these people the way they are. As the story ends, peace returns to Rosanada, and justice is served.
<p><b><u>About the Author</u>:</b>
<br>Son of an American mother and a Spanish father, Josué Raúl Conte, a native of Andorra, a principality in the Pyrenees, was born in 1969. After his early education with the Jesuits, he enrolled at the Opus Dei University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, where he received his doctorate in medieval philosophy and literature. During his years at the university, he became a member of the Neo-catechumenal Way, but later was very disillusioned with the stringent constraints of ultraconservative Catholicism and adopted a more moderate approach to the faith and dropped out of the Way. Having taught at various colleges and universities, he is now a freelance journalist, living in San Francisco with his second wife Alicia and Ivan, their Russian wolfhound. He is also the author of <i>The Stones Cry Out!</i> and <i>The Chancery Murders</i> that start the story that began the Rosanada Trilogy. For more information visit www.listofbestbooks.com.
