A riveting crime novel by Irish Benedictine monk Andrew Nugent explores the darkness found in the human soul


When Maurice Tyson, housemaster at a top boys’ boarding school in Ireland, is found with his throat slit, Superintendent Denis Lennon and Sergeant Molly Power of the Irish Police Force struggle to uncover any probable motive for the brutal killing. Was it revenge? A kidnap attempt by terrorists gone badly wrong? Or is there a connection to a former student who killed himself barely a year ago?

           

A boy mysteriously disappears and the hunt is on for his abductors. But when another body is found, the situation gets even darker. Someone out there has a terrible secret, and will stop at nothing to keep it hidden.

           

Andrew Nugent’s third police procedural is a tour de force, filled with the compassion, insight, and humor that consistently mark the work of this very talented author.

But Gilhooly persisted, as if thirsting for martyrdom.‘Well it’s true, isn’t it? We’re all frozen to death. These sausages are only half cooked. That other mess tastes like puke.

Praise for Soul Murder

"Nugent, a Benedictine monk and former Dublin lawyer, knows all the naughty and brave boyhood foibles and writes of them with charm and empathy."--Kirkus Reviews 

"The third Lennon-Powers Irish police procedural...is an exciting whodunit. The insight into the goings on--including the pranks perpetrated at a boy's school--appears real, and the official investigation is well done and entertaining....[F]ans will...appreciate Andrew Nugent's thrilling murder investigation."--I Love a Mystery
