Publisher Description

This book was originally published under the title Ceremony in August 2021.

Dr. Kep Woodhead is a brilliant, irascible forensic toxicologist with a dark past and a nost for trouble. 

Bernadette Becker is a disgraced federal investigator with one last chance. 

They're both assigned to a strange poisoning case: a graduate student has been found dead in a 15th-century chapel, overdosed on a controversial hallucinogen.

The list of suspects is long: the priest, the professor, the piscary president, the protestor, the protégé, and at least one wants to silence Becker.  

Do Becker and Woodhead have a prayer of discovering the truth before the killer strikes again?

"...an intelligently wrought, involving and accomplished thriller. Highly recommended."

Schnozz!

Shortly into reading the book, we discover a character who resolves mysteries and murder using his sense of scent. This seems peculiar, and I’m not sure I will enjoy reading this book. Although luckily, once I start a book, 99.9% of the time I finish it. Am I ever glad I did! Great mystery; thoughtfully developed characters; just enough different to be intriguing; did not want to set down book to go to sleep! I’ve read a few other books from this author, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. On to book two in this series!

Deeply researched with convoluted storylines merging to create an exciting conclusion. I’ll be waiting for the next in this series which I quickly pre-ordered. Readers of the Fenway Stevenson Mysteries will love this.
