"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.
