Women killed in some female cult
29 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of women belong to a female cult that is secret and have secret rituals like the Mason but only for women. Four of the women are murdered. They are all hit in the head and died of drowning.

Later a man explains he has a "wife" who is Indian and 2 kids. He said someone found out they were not married and was going to expose them. He went though some spin talk "just because I was not married in church does not mean I'm not married." So much baloney, you don't have to be married in church to be married you can be married by the county. He was one of the uppity men that had a business.

There is a lot of confusion in the story and lots of suspects. There is a Persian professor who is in a cult something like Zoroaster he helps Murdoch define some of the pieces that were left with the women that died. They were metal pieces like a bird with wings and a tail.

Dr Grace meets up with a man and woman she knew back when and they act like they are better then her because they are rich. She later challenges a woman to a croquet game to get even with her.
