This true crime book tells the story of the murder of an elderly nun in a hospital chapel on Holy Saturday 1980; the cover-up involving police and the church, and the arrest by cold-case detectives 24 years later of a Catholic priest. Police believe the nun was the victim of a ritual killing. Father Gerald Robinson was convicted of murder in a trial that shocked a city, a church and a nation. He was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison and died in a prison hospice in 2014. Sin, Shame & Secrets unveils how cold-case investigators decided to reopen the case in 2003 after a Toledo nun testified that Father Robinson had abused her in satanic rituals when she was a child.
