This Omnibus Edition collects the six Nun With A Gun stories into a single volume, The Book of Jacobine.

The Pope calls Alice Fisher—Sister Jacobine—his giusta mano destra or “righteous right hand.” At his behest, she deals with those who step outside of the Church’s doctrines and, through their actions, dishonor His Holiness. Alice’s unique skillset and God-given gifts make her particularly well-suited as the Pope’s enforcer.

Powerful forces inside the Church target Sister Jacobine, to weaken His Holiness’ preeminence and further their own dark agenda. Alice must use her considerable skills and resources to safeguard those closest to her, including His Holiness himself.

When a Vatican hit squad targets her, Alice turns to the only person she can count on for help—the Philadelphia Police Detective who arrested her for murder.

Feet of Clay, the first Jacobine story, was released as a standalone short on September 1, 2020. Due to reader demand, the rest of the stories were released over the next six weeks.

A Nun With A Gun is a series of short stories and novelettes about Sister Jacobine, the Pope’s hitwoman. They are best read in order.

Addicting stories, full of interesting characters and intrigue!

Sister Jacobine's (aka Alice) stories are a fun roller-coaster! I was captivated by the action, characters and the mysteries that unfolded. I loved that each book revealed more of the complexities of the characters and yet there was still fast paced action throughout. In each book I was intrigued to find out how Sister was going to pull off her impressive escape from the latest imbroglio.

Sometimes we saw a little hint of the background and had hints of how this will affect Alice in the future. Alice is still a mysterious woman with such calm, despite the unusual variety of situations she finds herself in.

Succinct and well written, The Nun With A Gun series keeps the thrills and mystery alive and thriving! I have no particular interest in religious or thriller stories but Mark Posey writes Alice's story so well that I think I would enjoy whatever he wrote!

I recommend starting at book one and taking time to savour each of these novelettes packed full of intrigue and engaging characters. I'm looking forward to the upcoming full length novel about Alice's next challenges and adventures.

The Book of Jacobine

The Book of Jacobine, by Mark Posey, is the collection of all six short stories and novelettes in the “A Nun with A Gun” series, about Sister Jacobine, hitman for the Pope.

Feet of Clay is the first chapter. A chance encounter with Rachel Rafferty and her brother, a Philadelphia police detective, tilts the Sister’s world, and start a domino effect. It’s a great introduction to the characters, and gives some of the backstory to this unique character.

A Port in the Storm, continues the story. This time, instead of working for her boss, the boss is out to terminate her services, permanently. Having nowhere else to go, Sister Jacobine lands on the doorstep of Detective Rafferty and his family, bringing trouble with her.

Excommunication, continues the story. Trouble has arrived at the door of Detective Rafferty and his family. Sister Jacobine must find a way to save the Detective, in the hospital dying of a gunshot wound, while dealing with the kidnapping of his wife and daughters.

Requiem Mass. Damage has been done, and there will be retribution. The perpetrators think they know what’s coming, but they don’t really understand until it’s too late.

Den of Lions. Sister Jacobine’s enemies within the Vatican are still there, working across the sea to destroy her. This time, she’s pushed further away from the protection of the Pope, and out into the world on her own. Strangely enough, there are still old friends around. Very old friends.

Narrow Gate. She’s lost a lover, will lose a friend, and soon could lose herself. The pace slows for Alice, as she spends time with someone from her past, even as a new killer is on the loose. The carding card left on the bodies are just like those she normally leaves, but they aren’t hers. Great twist at the end setting up, hopefully, another, longer, chapter in this unique series.
