    The body of a young man is found in an old crypt.  No one from the church has a key.  Thieves were the ones who discovered it.  Dr. Kate is puzzled by the damage to his throat.  Who killed him and how did they place him there?

    Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 1st.

    The older detective thinks he was into drugs.  Kate doesn't.  But she finds he is a black sheep.  He is from a moneyed family but he dances to a different drummer.  There was some thought about him being gay, maybe sex was the cause of the murder.  No matter what they guess, they aren't getting any further on the case.  The chief is getting static from the mayor and they are under pressure to find the killer.

    Add in a priest who doesn't always act like one and seems to enjoy is younger choir members more than he should, questionable behavior on the parent's part, and an old parishioner who commits suicide at his wife's nursing home (why would he do that?) right after having a nice chat with Kate.  There's something more going on than they can see.

    It comes down to a desperate stand off at the end and the killer was someone I was surprised to find was involved.  I had a lot of suspects but the killer wasn't one of them.  Let me know if you figure it out early!
