As the Lenten season of Penance is observed in the Convent of the Daughters of Compassion, Sister Joan finds herself struggling with her less-than-Christian feelings toward two very prickly personalities: the serious and rather stiff Father Timothy and the dour Sister Jerome. Soon, however, she finds herself wrestling with a larger transgression -- murder.

When the rectory housekeeper is found dead of a pill overdose, Sister Joan refuses to believe the police's suspicions of suicide -- and an accident seems equally unlikely. A sudden rash of corpses appears to bear out her theory. Now as she grapples with her conscience and her vows during the holy season, the fearless nun sets a trap for a killer...but she may well find herself caught in an unholy -- and deadly -- snare.
