Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne is a stand-up human being. Ex-Army, well-liked and respected by everyone in his department and in the small community of Millers Kill, New York. Clare Fergusson recently arrived in Millers Kill as a newly ordained Episcopal priest. She has been given responsibility for the parish of St. Alban's, and she has a surprising background- she was a crack military helicopter pilot until she found her new calling.
Both feel a commitment to honor and duty. But something is happening. Since they first encountered each other (see Spencer-Fleming's In the Bleak Midwinter) a profound respect and strong affection has grown between them. The problem: Russ is married. Both Russ and Clare are struggling to control what they feel.
Russ talks with his wife about what is happening- and she throws him out.
Could things get worse?
What if Russ's wife is murdered - brutally? What if Russ is the principle suspect? What if suspicion falls across Clare as well?
This mystery series by Julia Spencer-Fleming is winning big awards. Murder in a small town. With good people and a community you will believe in.
