The new and reissued J. D. Robb classic from the 'In Death' series, in which a murdered priest's past throws up far more than Eve ever imagined. And now Eve is in the firing line . . .

He raised the chalice, they prayed and they sang. He was dead the moment he drank the blood.

A crowd gathers for a funeral at a downtown New York church. As Father Flores smiles down on his congregation and drinks from the chalice of Christ's blood, he falls down dead. But who would murder a priest?

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is convinced there is more to Flores than meets the eye. When an autopsy reveals old combat wounds, and someone begins to destroy every last remaining links to Flores' old life, Eve knows she is facing an act of revenge which knows no boundaries . . .
