Publisher Description

"Vivid, alluring, and heart-wrenching, A Pilgrimage to Death is every reason I love mystery. A breathtaking tale." ~ Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author

Cici discovers a body in the forest. The victim's wounds are identical to the ones that killed her sister a year ago...

Someone murdered her sister. And shot her dog. The killer won't stop until Cici's dead, too. 

With her identical twin sister haunting her dreams, Cici and her dogs must dodge arrows, bullets, and even a demon truck. Worse, she must grapple with the knowledge her twin's death was much more sinister than a random act of violence.

The chase is on. 

As Cici and Detective Sam Chastain edge closer to the truth, the murderer circles closer. This time, the criminal plots to stop Cici. Permanently.

Identical Death is the first book in, A Reverend Cici Gurule Mystery. 

Although these books are best read in order, as a series, they can be read as a standalone.

A Pilgrimage to Death

This is a great mystery with twists and turns and just a smidgeon of romance mixed in. The characters are all great and there are lots of them, some nice, some not so nice and some more evil than you expect. Kept me guessing right to the end.

My new favourite mystery writer!

Fantastic, my new favourite mystery writer! Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Twisty Mystery

Ms Padgett delivers quirky interesting characters in a tale that will have you racing to the end! Having enjoyed her Seattle Sound series, I wasn't sure what to expect, this departure from romance suits Alexa.
I enjoyed the suspense and getting to know the intriguing Rev. Cici and Sam. I look forward to the next mystery in this series.
