With the holidays approaching, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen and her best friend, Susan Tucker, take a much-needed time-out at the mountain monastery of Mount Carmel. But their worldly worries are soon overshadowed when, before their eyes, a statue of the Virgin Mary begins to cry tears of blood. Legend has it that Mary's tears foreshadow crises--and legend may be right....
When a monk, who just happens to be Susan's great- uncle Thomas, is found frozen to death at the base of the statue, it's only the beginning of a series of deadly events. Soon Harry is knee-deep in an unofficial investigation with her meddling menagerie--Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, and Tucker--close behind. Because in this case it will be a miracle if Harry stays alive.
This is #13 in Mrs. Murphy series.
