More Murder in a Nunnery by Eric Shepherd (1954)

A murder mystery - in a convent. :-)

The sequel to "Murder in a Nunnery", which unfortunately had it's copyright renewed. Annoying when they do that! :lol:
It's been awhile since I read either book, but I don't think you need to be familiar with the first to enjoy the second.

CHAPTER I
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF AT HARRINGTON CONVENT

WHEN Reverend Mother of Harrington was told
that another dead body had been found on the
conventual premises she was silent for, possibly,
ten seconds.
Then she said: “And they say history never
repeats itself ” '
Mother Assistant, her informant, underwent
a spasm of those strongly aquiline features which,
though she was the gentlest soul, struck the
Junior School as with a palsy.
“I cannot express, dear Reverend Mother, my
sympathy ”
“Let me know the worst.”
“It isn’t the worst, thank God. Not one of the
children. Not one of us. Only a man ”
