This series has gone off the tracks for me ever since book 7. I had #8--this book--in my library so I decided to try it hoping that Spencer-Fleming had gotten the "I can be nasty" out of her system. No such luck. Much of the action and plot are so implausible it is ridiculous and the rest is so dark and ugly it gives me pause.
I bet the Adirondack Tourist Board, the New York State Police and the Episcopal Diocese of Albany are absolutely thrilled with how they are depicted in this book by an out-of-stater. I can't even begin to list plot topics here as it is so sorted. Just look at some of the reviews on amazon and they will fill you in with great and gory detail. For me, I am bidding good bye to Clare and Russ.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. What was a beautiful series is now trying to reach some other audience, maybe one that watches action movies. And I won't buy any more books with this reader.
If you’ve listened to books by Julia Spencer-Fleming before, how does this one compare?
I haven't listened before, and I won't buy this reader again. Russ sounds like he is an 80 year old curmudgeon and Claire sounds like Scarlett O' Hara; I was completely turned off.
Would you be willing to try another one of Suzanne Toren’s performances?
No. I'll be watching for her name to make sure I don't.
Could you see Through the Evil Days being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Maybe, but for a different audience than I. I don't even know the name of actors to play these roles, I don't watch action movies.
Any additional comments?
Very disappointed. I have always looked forward to the books in this series.
