Lee Child is quoted on the cover as saying, "The best yet in an already amazing series" and I fully agree! Julia Spencer-Fleming has outdone herself in this fifth installment in her series of mysteries, featuring Clare Fergusson and Russ Van Alstyne.

Russ is the chief of police in Millers Kill, a small town in upstate New York. The new Episcopal priest in town, Clare, is intriguing; ex-Army helicopter pilot, she has seen and done more than one would expect from a female...especially a female priest. The attraction is strong between these two, but there's one problem: Russ is married.

The author crafts a great mystery, but also builds a believeable relationship between her two characters. The sexual tension is handled very well, making these novels more than your typical cozy mystery, and yet not quite as grim as a Cornwell. The four books before "All Mortal Flesh" lead up to this plotline very nicely.

There is suspense, tension, and twists that you won't see coming. I couldn't put it down, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!

MORE SWITCHBACKS THAN AN ADIRONDACK ROAD...
Possibly the best of the series, with life/death, loyalty/betrayal, certainty/doubt, love/hate throughout...outside characters interfere with the Millers Kill Police Department, St. Albans Church, and lives of the main characters, and we learn more about Clare, Russ and others. One of the few true "page-turners" I've recently read.

I have enjoyed all the books in the series, do yourself a favor and read in order. There is a such a good flow to the characters, language, descriptions and then add the plot and angst among the leads.
Plain simple, this was just a great read, keep them coming!
