Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper is called to Mount Neboh Baptist Church, a beautiful house of worship originally built as a synagogue. The body of a young woman has been decapitated, set on fire, and left burning on the church steps. The only identifiable artifact on the charred remains is the imprint of a Star of David necklace. Alex wonders if the fire was meant to destroy this woman's body, or to draw attention to it. Her fears are confirmed days later when a second corpse is found. Convinced that another young woman is bound to die, Alex mines the depths of Manhattan's many houses of worship to find a connection between the victims, and in the process uncovers a terrible and perilous truth that takes her far beyond the scope of her investigation, and directly into the path of terrible danger.

Good reading almost to the point of staying up late to finish it. \plus you get a history of early New York churches.

13th caper for Alex Cooper, diving deep into the byzantine, sinister world of Manhattan's powerful religious institutions.
