Publisher's Summary

Hot on the heels of her multiaward-winning debut, In the Bleak Midwinter, Julia Spencer-Fleming delivers the latest captivating mystery in her acclaimed series.

When the local doctor disappears from the small town of Millers Kill, New York, it doesn't take long for the gossip mongers to start insinuating foul play. Amid escalating suspicions that he was "disposed of" due to his ongoing fight to prevent authorities from cutting his clinic's funding, Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson and police chief Russ van Alstyne are enlisted to investigate. Neither could have bargained for what they discover, however, as they pursue an investigation that takes them deep into the past - to the Jazz Age, Prohibition, and the Great Depression - and to a series of sordid and horrifying secrets one family will risk everything to keep hidden.

I haven't been this excited with an author in years!

Best of the first three storylines! Julia knows how to balance a book. Just the right amount of humor, drama and even a sprinkling of spirituality! Narrator brings EACH character to life! Perfect inflection.
PS I also haven't been this excited since I discovered Diane Mott Davidson!
PPS if anyone feels up to correcting my grammar, please do so. LOL

My favorite so far in the series.

The plot is unique and complex. I especially enjoyed the flashback chapters from Mrs. Ketchum in the 1920s. It lead me to research the Adirondacks and their geography. Maps seem to bring a story to life for me even if Miller's Kill is a fictional town. Suzanne Toren's narrative helped me to appreciate the personalities and emotions of the characters especially Rev. Claire Ferguson. On to book four!
