The small Caravaggio which hangs in the chapel of Doon Abbey attracts visitors from far and wide, until one night it disappears. The Sister Superior is unwilling to cooperate as this would compromise her silent-order ethos. Alice Dunwoody, a novitiate at the abbey, persuades Sister Mercy Superior to allow her to investigate, with the help of the abbey's librarian, Sister Mary Magdalene. As the nuns try to track down the painting, the list of possible suspects - and the body count - multiplies. Seven authors, including Maeve Binchy, each write a different chapter of the story.
