“Shore provides interesting characters who are vulnerable and who give us a glimpse into their worlds. …Those who love a good mystery will enjoy this read and it will keep you on your toes, trying to guess what may befall the detective and Sister Lucie.” -The Pen and Muse Book Reviews
“[Seeker of Truth] doesn’t shy away from seedier aspects of criminality. Its story examines marriage: a fullfilled one, and the consequences of a marriage-of-convenience. It is well-written, and thoughtful.” -The GenReview
“a fast-paced mystery of friendship…” -Midwest Reviews
A nun joins forces with her late husband’s partner when she learns about the murder of a former friend. Armed with Jed McCracken’s police detective skills and Sister Lucie’s intuition, the pair tackles the task of finding the killer in Seeker of Truth. Sister Lucie never understood why the victim, Charlene Stowes, became disillusioned with the religious life eighteen months before her death. Now she’s challenged to make sense of Charlene’s charade of a marriage and her liaison with a stranger. Jed provides the police know-how for the investigation and Sister Lucie’s experiences involving her deceased husband, Mark, validate the importance of specific clues. The killer proves elusive, however, until Sister Lucie agrees to bait a trap.
Seeker of Truth is a tale of reaping what is sown. The action takes place in the Indianapolis area after the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. The story will appeal to readers who enjoy puzzles surrounding human motivation and behavior. The trail toward the crime’s solution leads Sister Lucie and Jed through layers of deception, temptation and greed with each new discovery emphasizing the consequences of human failings, including their own.
