Unholy City by Carrie Smith. Published by Crooked Lane

Churchwarden Philip Graves’s body has been found in the herb garden of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Manhattan and while it seems at first to be a random killing, it soon proves to be anything but. Detectives Claire Cordella nd Brian Haggerty may not always see eye to eye, but they are willing to overlook their differences to solve this murder. With a number of homeless men sleeping in the church basement and a number of church elders who might benefit from Graves’s death, there’s no lack of suspects. Cordella, Haggerty and fellow detective Eduardo Munoz dig in to find the killer. Smith’s book is full of such vividly described people and places that you can feel the tenseness of the atmosphere and the melancholy beauty of the old church
