All Mortal Flesh

Author: 
Julia Spencer-Fleming
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. 
 
Give this a try.  Let me know what you think.
