FINAL QUESTIONS.Until someone killed her, the only mystery about adorable Iris Grodnik was why she had never married. But for fifteen years, her strange disappearance and murder during a Passover seder has remained a troubling piece of family history.So when Iris’s relatives ask ex-nun Chris Bennett–now the wife of a New York City cop–to make one last attempt to learn the truth, she reluctantly consents. Iris’s old friends and suitors have scattered, and Chris soon suspects that some of the relatives are not telling her all they know about Iris’s life and death.Then, in the dusty depths of a hall closet, she finds an old leather purse–and her worst forebodings about Iris Grodnik’s haunting murder begin to be fulfilled. . . .

I always look forward to a new mystery by Lee Harris. Her novels about ex-nun Christine Bennett are in that central range between cozy and hardboiled — the perfect balance. Ever since I encountered Christine Bennett in THE GOOD FRIDAY MURDER, which was nominated for an Edgar Award as best first novel, I’ve been fascinated by the author’s depiction and development of her heroine — Christine matures in surprising (but always believeable ways) as the series continues. It would be hard to pick my favorite Lee Harris mystery, but certainly among my favorites is THE CHRISTENING DAY MURDER, in which a thirty-year-old unsolved murder has impact on present-day menace. –Joe Blades, Associate Publisher
