The third installment in the best-selling Monastery Murders series Following the ancient tradition, ordinands from the College of the Transfiguration gather at first light on Ascension morning to sing their praises from the top of the college's tallest tower. Not one to miss any liturgy, Felicity finds herself swept up in worship as she listens to the timeless words.
But her delight quickly turns to horror when a black-robed body hurtles over the precipice and lands at her feet. Her investigative instincts immediately kick in when she sees a double-headed snake emblem clutched in the lifeless hand. Was this suicide? Or murder?
This time, though, Felicity will leave the investigating to someone else. She and her fiance, Antony, are off to lead a youth pilgrimage through Wales. Yet even in this remote, mystical land, lurking figures follow Felicity and Antony, and Felicity finds herself haunted by the writhing snakes. Then an ancient holy well reveals another body . . .
Ingeniously plotted by a master of contemporary suspense, An Unholy Communion weaves Great Britain's holy places and history with an intricate mystery that will keep readers guessing to the very end.

I did have a bit of a hard time getting into this mystery, if you do, don't give up. It is a good read.
Can't imagine, singing and praying at the Feast of the Ascension, and having a body land at my feet. That does happen to Felicity, and the police rule Hwyl Pendry's death a suicide.
Felicity's Fiancé, Father Antony, is leading a youth pilgrimage through Wales. Felicity decides to go along. Traveling this historical countryside, some answers come to light. There are some that are going to surprise you.
Loved when the three nails are found, what they symbolize you will need to read the book. Head into a really good historical mystery. You will find that this is a very well researched book. It is also the third book in the series, and although it can be read alone, I would recommend you get to know everyone, and read the first one!
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
