BLESSED ARE THE LIVING
Martha O'Gorman's husband had walked out the door one rainy night five years ago and never come back. The police verdict was accidental death - but Patrick O'Gorman's body was never found.
Now a stranger had come to town asking questions about Patrick's disappearance. He told Martha that Sister Blessing of the True Believers - a strange, fanatical religious community in the California mountains - had hired him to find Patrick. Martha resented the detective's questions and could see no connection between Sister Blessing and her missing husband. But there was a connection, and Martha would soon be forced to see it as she intered a dark, forbidding world of deception, horror, and death.
