The Mystery Bookshelf, where you can discover a world of mystery and suspense, is pleased to feature a new crime novel we recently received from the publisher.

One horrible murder. Two people destined for love or tragedy. Emotions explode in Millers Kill, where nothing is as it seems …

About All Mortal Flesh (from the publisher): Russ Van Alstyne figures his wife kicking him out of their house is nobody's business but his own. Until a neighbor pays a friendly visit to Linda Van Alstyne — and finds the woman's body, gruesomely butchered, on the kitchen floor.

To the state police, it's an open-and-shut case of a disaffected husband silencing his wife and putting a stop to the murder investigation he controls. To the townspeople, it's proof that the whispered gossip about the police chief and the priest was true. To the powers-that-be in the church hierarchy, it's a chance to control their wayward cleric once and for all.

Russ and Clare must struggle against the reach of the law, the authority of the church, and their own guilty hearts.
