From the moment Dana Bowman sees the redheaded nun arguing with a man on the street and Bast Overture receives an email from Eli Foster asking him to find her birth parents, the twin PIs are thrust into a complex chain of events involving extortion, stalking, fire, vandalism, secret adoptions, a bank robbery, assault, and murders – past and present.

The nun, Sister Margaret Olsen, is suspected of pushing her younger brother, Larry, into traffic, killing him. Detective Sergeant Donald Fielding asks the twins to do an independent background check on her. When the nun arrives at the Attic Investigative Agency, Dana recognizes her as the teacher who assaulted her as a child. To add another level of complexity, hovering in the background throughout the twists and turns of the twins’ investigation is the nameless woman fixated on killing with an axe.

Then Dana is attacked. Suffering the after-effects of concussion, she struggles to remember what actually happened while trying to get her life back to normal. However, bad decisions and bad memory might just get her killed…

Beyond Faith offers secrets, lies and death with a connection to the Catholic Church. Recommended for detective-story fans yearning for Ontario-based tales.”- Nate Hendley, true-crime author (Steven Truscott: Decades of Injustice and The Big Con)

“A powerful, haunting novel that turns the domestic lives of detectives into deadly games of hide-and-seek, laying bare the dark heart of fear and the complexities of family bonds.” – Bianca Lakoseljac, author of Stone Woman and Summer of the Dancing Bear
