Eleven Days

Author:

Stav Sherez

Synopsis:

A fire rages through a sleepy West London square a few days before Christmas, engulfing a small convent hidden away among the residential houses. When DI Jack Carrigan and DS Geneva Miller arrive at the scene they discover eleven bodies, yet there were only supposed to be ten nuns in residence. Why did they make no move to escape the fire? Who is the eleventh victim, whose body was found separate from the others? And where is the convent's priest, the one man who can answer their questions? Fighting both internal politics and the church hierarchy, Carrigan and Miller unravel the threads of a case that reaches back to the early 1970s. Meanwhile, closer to home, there's a new threat in the air - one the police are entirely unprepared for...
