Lupe dabbles with Catholicism and the phenomenon of revealed miracles in this the fourth book in the Lupe Solano series. The Order of the Illumination of the Sacred Virgin, a Miami Catholic order that has produced verified miracles in the past, prophesies that the statue of the Virgin at a reverred Cuban shrine will shed actual tears on the anniversary of Cuban independence. Lupe’s sister Lourdes, a rather unorthodox nun at another Miami order, enlists her sister’s help to investigate the truth of this claim. Lupe suspects more than possible fraud is involved when the order’s enigmatic sister Mary Margaret disappears and a corpse is fished out of Miami’s Biscayne Bay. As the date of the predicted miracle draws nearer, Lupe races against time to find the truth…and a killer.
