Death at Whitewater Church Publisher's Summary
A missing groom - a deconsecrated church - a hidden crypt - a skeleton wrapped in a blanket
When a skeleton is discovered in the hidden crypt of a deconsecrated church, everyone is convinced the bones must be those of Conor Devitt, a local man who went missing on his wedding day six years previously. But the postmortem reveals otherwise.
Solicitor Benedicta "Ben" O'Keeffe is acting for the owners of the church. She is reluctant to get involved, but when Conor's brother dies in strange circumstances shortly after coming to see her, she finds herself drawn into the mystery. Whose is the skeleton in the crypt and how did it get there? Is Conor Devitt still alive, and if so, is there a link? What happened on the morning of his wedding to make him disappear?
Negotiating between the official investigation - headed up by the handsome but surly Sergeant Tom Molloy - and obstructive locals with secrets of their own, Ben unravels layers of personal and political history to get to the truth of what happened six years before.
