Publisher's Summary

Nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks, Miller's Kill, New York, is about as safe as it gets. That's why Episcopal minister Clare Fergusson is shocked when the July Fourth weekend brings a rash of vicious assaults to the scenic town. Even Clare's good friend, police chief Russ Van Alstyne, is shaken by the brutality of the crimes - especially when it appears that the victims were chosen because they are gay.
But when a third assault of an out-of-town developer ends in murder, Clare and Russ wonder if the recent crime wave is connected to the victim's controversial plan to open an upscale spa in Miller's Kill.
But not all things in the tiny town are what they seem - and soon, Clare and Russ are left to fight their unspoken attraction to one another even as they uncover a labyrinthine conspiracy that threatens to turn deadly for them both.

A Very Compelling Millers Kill mystery

I am hooked on Julia Spencer-Fleming's Millers Kill mysteries!
A perfect formula of not-too-cozy and not-too-grisly with a touch of romantic suspense. The second book is just as engrossing as the first one, with Clare and Russ working on another case while trying to avoid their mutual attraction to each other.
Suzanne Toren's ability to bring the characters to life with her remarkable range of voices provides a very compelling listening experience.

Great Listen

Smart, funny, medium-grisly violence, well developed characters that are not at all perfect. Well narrated too.
