Publisher's Summary

A Small Case of Murder is set in the quaint town of Chester, West Virginia, where everyone knows everyone, and there is never a secret that someone doesn't know. In such a small intimate village, how many disappearances can be left unquestioned? Following the death of his wife, Joshua Thornton moves into his ancestral home across country with his five children. While clearing out the attic, the children find a 34-year-old letter to their grandmother that implicates a local minister in an unreported murder. Today a double homicide has the whole town under a microscope. The state attorney general appoints Joshua special prosecutor to solve the crimes. In a place where gossip flies as swiftly as a spring breeze it is impossible to know who to trust. Asking simple questions about events long ago could prove to be deadly for Joshua and his family.

Great book

This was a great listen, the mystery was well done and all ends were tied up nicely. I liked the way the author included all the children of the hero, an ex naval JAG. She makes you like lawyers! I am anxious to hear the next Joshua Thornton mystery!

Nice Try

As a native of Appalachia who has returned home I bought this selection with high hopes. They weren't realized. There were moments of inspiration in between long periods where I lost contact with the story. The narrator didn't help the story much; his monotone style furthered my lack of interest. It is my opinion that this book isn't worthy of a credit.
