No. 2 in the Olympia Brown Mysteries: When a vicious alcoholic dies in a suspicious fire, Rev. Olympia Brown and Fr. Jim Sawicki must prove his death was an accident and not murder-but evidence against the wife and daughter is mounting. The two clerics have little time to learn the truth and prevent the daughter he molested for years from ending her own life. Olympia and Jim confront unspeakable realities of incest, domestic violence and dark family secrets in a tangle of misconstrued Catholic dogma and the Irish culture of silence as they struggle to untangle a hideous web of shame, guilt, and broken lives.
