The monks of Holy Face Monastery—Hard Cider Abbey—are forced to take in a disgraced archbishop awaiting a Vatican tribunal for alleged misdeeds. But when the prelate is found near death, monastery sleuth Brother Emerick struggles to save the abbey’s reputation by rooting out the culprit. But did the would-be killer come from beyond abbey walls, or is it one of the monks themselves? And what was the motive? Twined in with this mystery is the question of the archbishop’s guilt or innocence: Is he a saint, or a ‘Brother Rattlesnake’? A cozy, yet provocative, whodunit, based in part on current events.
