Book Rating: 8/10
Veteran NYPD Detective Tommy Keane has spent nineteen years chasing criminals in the Bronx – investigating unimaginable crimes and solving near-impossible cases. When a punitive measure forces Keane to transfer to the relatively quiet 21st Precinct in Manhattan, he expects his last thirteen months before retirement to be painfully easy. But as the grisly murder of a celebrated nun soon proves, even the safest neighborhoods can have their secrets, and even the most seasoned detective can be surprised by the disturbing and unspeakably cruel acts humans can commit, and endure.
Suspenseful, tense, and action-packed!
Sister Margaret is a pacey, atmospheric tale that introduces us to the NYPD Detective Tommy Keane who with retirement on the near horizon gets transferred to the quieter 2-1 Upper East Side Precinct only to have one of the most gruesome murders ever to fall into his lap.
The writing is tight and fluid. The characters are hardworking, intelligent, and tenacious. And the plot using short, intense chapters is a captivating police procedural full of red herrings, deception, abuse, secrets, violence, police politics, and murder.
Overall, Sister Margaret is a short, quick, gritty read that’s a wonderful start to this new series by the Myers siblings with its intriguing characters, nice sense of urgency, and satisfying conclusion.

It’s a fast moving read with very relatable characters and a very likable protagonist.
The realism shines through from the authors personal history and experiences, can’t wait for book 2.
