Habit of Murder by Joanne Miller
When a human skeleton is found in the wall of the United Baptist Church, Sister Vivian Salter is called in to unravel the mystery. As she coaxes the town to give up its secrets, she butts heads with the local officer, nursing staff, farmhands, and an eccentric mute who claims he convenes with spirits. No one seems to be missing and the locals want to focus on enjoying their recent Hockey Championship win. The case tests Sister Vivian's spiritual strength as she tries to determine who and what to believe. The more she digs, the more ghosts, murderers and memories she unearths. Habit of Murder played to sold out houses at Ship's Company Theatre.
