In her 70s, Mary Helen is supposedly retired at Mount St. Mary College. When her timid secretary Suzanne Barnes is murdered, however, the grieving nun determines to see justice done. Her friends in the police have no leads; very little is known about the victim, who had appeared out of nowhere, seemingly, to work at the school. Taking her equally daring religious companions on visits to people in Suzanne's apartment building, Mary Helen questions the residents but gets no solid clues.
Sister Mary Helen finds herself solving 3 murders which have a common link.
When the OWLS, including Sisters Mary Helen and Eileen, return from their convention, their friend Erma Duran goes missing. Did she move away without letting anyone know, as suggested by her friend, landlord and boss, Al Finn? Or has something more sinister happened? And where do her children fit into it?
Sister Mary Hellen has agreed to be interviewed on live TV local news. The popular anchorwoman conducting her interview dies on the set. The nun once again finds herself involved in the investigation of the crime.
Sister Mary Helen isn't ready for retirement. Instead she's arrived at a San Francisco women's college to teach history and perhaps shake things up. An earthquake does that before she can, and amid the rubble lies a body. An "Act of God" is not responsible for the death, but rather murder. One of Sister Helen's fellow nuns begins a novena to St. Dismas, "the Good Thief" predicting the saint will reveal the murderer within nine days. Sure enough the police soon nab a suspect...but Sister Mary Helen believes it's the wrong man and begins her own pursuit of the killer. Her motive is justice...and her inspiration, simply divine.
