I love a good crime story and Sister Margaret is just that. Thank you to Bully Press for giving me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Tommy Keane has been a detective in the Bronx for years. When Tommy gets in a little trouble, he is transferred to the 21st Precinct in Manhattan. He expects an easy ride, but then a beloved nun is found brutally murdered. Even a seasoned detective is surprised by this motive.
My Thoughts on Sister Margaret
Sister Margaret was a good read. However, it was to the point, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There wasn’t a ton of back story or filler content to bog the crime aspect down. I appreciated that.
Although, I would like to learn more about Tommy. There were glimpses of his life, but no answered questions. Since it’s the start of the series, I expect there will be more of his backstory to come. I also really liked his mother, so I hope she’s included in the next one.
The crime was pretty horrifying, but believable. I believe one of the authors was a detective. You can tell by the details that the authors know what they are talking about.
I did start to piece together the motive, but I was wrong about the perpetrator. It ended up being even darker than I expected. It was a heartbreaking case. There were a lot of emotions at the end. Sister Margaret is a pretty solid crime fiction novel. I look forward to reading more.
My Rating: 4/5
