A Killing in Retrospect
A Sister Mary Agnes MysteryeBook - 2010
A gangland war threatens to break out in Depression-era Providence, R.I., in Cummings's gripping second Sister Agnes mystery. Dante Ricci, the nine-year-old son of reputed mob boss Vincent Ricci, asks Sister Mary Agnes of the Merciful Sisters of Mary to catch whoever killed his mother, who died a year earlier in a suspicious car crash at the Ricci family farm. Aggie's policeman cousin, Sgt. Josiah Morgan, and Pietro Tiny DiSilva, Vincent's partner, join the informal investigation. After Irish maid Kitty Killian dies from eating cyanide-laced sugar cubes intended for Vincent, Sister Agnes begins to think they're starring in their own version of the gangster film Public Enemy. Sure enough, more murders follow.
