A coffin is dug up by builders in the grounds of an historic convent - inside is the body of a young nun.
In a city as old as London, the discovery is hardly surprising. But w hen scratch marks are found on the inside of the coffin lid, Detective Jane Tennison believes she has unearthed a mystery far darker than any she's investigated before. However, not everyone agrees. Tennison's superiors dismiss it as an historic cold case, and the Church seems desperate to conceal the facts from the investigation. It's clear that someone is hiding the truth, and perhaps even the killer. Tennison must pray she can find both - before they are buried forever . . .
In Unholy Murder, Tennison must lift the lid on the most chilling murder case of her career to date . . .

Unholy Murder is a truly enjoyable read. Twists, turns, and surprises will keep the reader engaged from beginning to end. LaPlante's use of varied syntax and realistic dialogue makes the book an English teacher's dream.
I really enjoyed Unholy Murder from the first page. The story line was great and I enjoyed all the characters which were perfectly suited to the story. There was many twists and turns that it kept the reader not wanting to put the book down until the end. This was the first book of Linda laPlante that I read and look forward to reading her other books. Thank you NetGalley and Bonnier Books Co. UK for this ARC.
