he nun, Sister Margaret Olsen, is suspected of pushing her younger brother, Larry, into traffic, killing him. Detective Sergeant Donald Fielding asks the twins to do an independent background check on her. When the nun arrives at the Attic Investigative Agency, Dana recognizes her as the teacher who assaulted her as a child. To add another level of complexity, hovering in the background throughout the twists and turns of the twins’ investigation is the nameless woman fixated on killing with an axe.

Then Dana is attacked. Suffering the after-effects of concussion, she struggles to remember what actually happened while trying to get her life back to normal. However, bad decisions and bad memory might just get her killed...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Rollercoaster Ride with Endless Twists and Turns "Beyond Faith" is the latest instalment in Sharon A. Crawford’s "Beyond" crime fiction series. It picks up where "Beyond Blood" leaves off with Dana Bowman and her son David still recovering from the trauma of David’s kidnapping. But fate does not allow them much time to heal as Dana and her twin brother Bast, owners of the Attic Investigative Agency, are thrust into a perplexing new case. It quickly becomes apparent that this new case has personal overtones as it intersects with Dana’s childhood. Sister Mary Olsen, a Catholic nun, is the connecting thread and at the center of this new mystery that involves secret adoptions and their consequences. The case and its multiple players lead Dana and Bast through a endless series of baffling twists and turns as they attempt to solve it. Murders, a bank robbery, a life threatening fire and extortion all play a role in weaving a web so complex it almost defies reason. Dana can’t help but delve deeper into these events even when it puts her in harm’s way. At the same time, she tries to navigate the fragile ground of her growing personal relationship with Detective Sergeant Donald Fielding. "Beyond Faith" is a wild, rollercoaster ride for mystery and crime fiction fans. But it is also a penetrating study of two truths we often try to avoid: 1) We can never entirely bury our past however hard we try to do so. 2) Family ties, and the baggage that comes with them, can circle back to ensnare us decades later regardless of our efforts to distance ourselves from them.
