Having long concealed his feelings for the Reverend Clare Fergusson, Police Chief Russ van Alstyne is stunned when he becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his wife and risks everything in his investigation to find the real culprit before it is too late. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne's first encounter with Clare Fergusson was in an emergency room on a freezing December night. A newborn had been left on the steps of the town's Episcopal church, where Clare just happened to be the new priest. That night in the hospital was the beginning of an attraction so fierce, so forbidden, that both Russ and Clare risked compromising all of their ethics and beliefs…

In the small community of Millers Kill, gossip spreads like wildfire. So when Russ's wife kicks him out of the house, he figures it's nobody's business but his own—until a neighbor stops by and finds Mrs. Van Alstyne's butchered corpse on the kitchen floor. To the townspeople and church folk, the murder is proof that the whispered rumors about the police chief and the priest were true. But nothing is as it seems in Millers Kill, where betrayal twists old friendships—and evil waits inside quaint white clapboard farmhouses…

In All Mortal Flesh, Julia Spencer-Fleming once again delivers a riveting page-turner of a mystery "that's quite possibly the best in the series" (Romantic Times).

5th title in the series of 9 titles thru yr 2020.
This is one of Spencer-Fleming's "best yet."

Do yourself a favor and if you're reading the series in order of publishing date, (which is the best way to read any series) DO NOT read ABOUT the plot. Just get the book and read.

Yet another good book in the Clare Ferguson/Russ Van Alstyne series. The story is an emotional roller coaster for the characters and the reader. What will happen with Russ?s marriage? Do he and Clare have a future? One question is answered and the other is still an unknown. I really like this series.
