Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan prays he will find a nun's murderer in this crime novel by CWA Diamond Dagger winner Catherine Aird The day begins like any other for Sister Mary St. Gertrude. When her alarm sounds at 5 a.m., Sister Mary begins rousting her convent sisters from their beds, starting with the Reverend Mother. Down the Order she goes with a knock and a warm blessing. But when the young nun reaches Sister Anne's door, there is no answer. She assumes that Sister Anne got up early, and continues on her way. But later, when a fellow nun leaves a bloody thumbprint on the sheet music for a hymn, and Sister Anne is nowhere to be found, it becomes apparent that something is very wrong. Then Sister Anne's body is found at the bottom of a steep set of stairs, her veil askew and her head crushed. Religious Body introduces the sophisticated Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan along with his eager and trustworthy sidekick, Detective Constable Crosby, and the acerbic Superintendent Leeyes in a mystery of holy proportions that will have readers guessing until the last page.… (lisätietoja)

Lovely lighthearted murder mystery set in a convent. Humour runs through the story. Very enjoyable. ( )

The Religious Body by Catherine Aird is the first book in The Calleshire Chronicles and is a good one. What initially presents as a locked room mystery set in a nunnery is far more complex than the initial set up would have the reader believe.

It is early November and before dawn at the Convent of St. Anselm as the book begins. Sister Mary St. Gertrude arises, and is her role each morning, goes about her morning duties. It is her duty this month and she moves through the building following the prescribed order of awakening all inside those walls. It takes a while with more than fifty people to awaken so that each may go about their day. As a result, it takes a while for the bloody thumbprint to gain attention and for the realization that Sister Anne can’t be found.

So, several hours have passed before Inspector C. D. Sloan and Detective-Constable William Crosby, a young officer and new to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Berebury Division of the Calleshire Constabulary, are dispatched to the covenant located a few miles away in Cullingoak village. Upon arrival, it takes additional time for them to be allowed into the inner rooms of the Covent and eventually to the body. Sister Anne is at the bottom of the cellar stairs and clearly died due to some sort of blow to her head that reshaped her skull. It is also clear, at least to C. D. Sloan, she did not die as a result of falling down the stairs.

To catch a killer, they have to work a case where normal witness behavior goes totally against the rules of the Convent and the faith and practice of the nuns. It is a good thing C. D. Sloan has the patience of a saint coupled with a touch of subtle humor and a knowledge of history. Not just helpful with the nuns, his skills also help him manage his boss.

A complex mystery full of clues and misdirection The Religious Body by Catherine Aird is a solidly good read. It moves fast despite the subtle observations about life and other things expressed by Inspector C. D. Sloan that are mixed in throughout the read. A solidly good foundation is laid here in the first book and I very much enjoyed it.

As my local library does not have this read in print, I was forced to go with the digital version via the library. While my copy from Open Road Media indicates the book is 210 pages, it was actually far less than that as there were ads for other reads as well as a long excerpt from the start of the next book in the series, Henrietta Who? That book is available in large print and is now on my holds list at the Dallas library.

The Religious Body. Catherine Aird. The CalleshireChronicles Book I. 2015. I think I must have downloaded this quaint little mystery from one of them many email lists I get. A nun is murdered and Detective Sloan and his assistant Crosby are sent to investigate. They know nothing about the convent and tread carefully. The convent is in an old house next to an agricultural college. The body of the nun is found, some of the boys make a “guy” dressed as a nun to burn on Guy Fawkes Night so they become suspect. And it turns out the nun who was

killed was due to inherit money so Sloan and Crosby have several leads to follow. Short and clever. ( )

The first Inspector Sloan mystery leads Sloan and Sergeant Crosby to a convent with a murdered nun. The nun came from a prominent manufacturing family and expected to come into money she planned to donate to mission work. A door left unlocked overnight opens the suspects to those outside the cloister, including some boys from a nearby school playing a prank. Another body turns up. Will Sloan catch the serial killer before another corpse is found? I enjoyed this first installment of the series. The narration was difficult to hear in places because the narrator's bass voice created difficulty in hearing whispered voices or comments made under one's breath. ( )

The first Inspector Sloan mystery from Aird although it's not necessary to read the series in order. This is a light mystery, with Sloan having to deal with the unfamiliar religious community when a nun is murdered. His boss is another trial, even more difficult to handle than the inhabitants of the convent. The book was written in 1966 and although it's showing its age in the dated attitudes of the characters, it remains a decent afternoon's entertainment. ( )
