A Southern tale of murder and deception surrounding a man who comes back home to Mirabeau, Texas to help with the care of his ailing mother.

His been out of the area too long ways irritate Miss Beta Harcher who feels that Jordan Poteet is allowing too many books into the library that are corrupting the minds of the young. After a very heated argument that is witnessed by quite a few town folk, Beta is found murdered in the library leaving Jordy as the prime suspect. It doesnt help that there is also a list of names, Jordy included, with Bible verses attached tucked into Betas shirt that lead to while speculation as to what the true purpose of her murder was.

Thus leads the reader on a twisted tale of the many that could be responsible and their own reasons for why they could have done it.

The book is very slow in the middle, but ends quite well; with a very good lead into the remainder of the series.

Dont know if I could actually recommend this book since I couldnt wait for it to end, but with some better pacing this could have been a very good book.

First in the Jordan Poteet series. It kept me guessing until the end, even though I thought I'd unraveled the "who". This was a very enjoyable mystery.

First book by Jeff Abbott and a delight. A Jorday Poteet series book. Takes place in a small Texas town, with several murders and eight or so suspects. Good sluething and a very easy read. I recommend it. (I had read a later book by Abbott and decided to go back to the beginning.)

Wonderful mystery, set in a library in a small Texas town. Great characters, a victim no one liked, lots of humor and a good puzzle.

Jordan Poteet returns to his small hometown of Mirabeau, Texas, to work as a librarian. Yet his quiet domesticity is shattered when he locks horns with Miss Beta Harcher, the town's prize religeous fanatic, in a knock-down drag-out battle over censorship.
When Jordan finds her murdered body in the library, he learns that Beta dead is much more dangerous than she ever was alive. Not only for Jordy, whom the police are itching to throw the book at, but for countless others. In fact, thanks to a cryptic list the police find stashed next to her fanatical heart, Beta Harcher has the whole town in a death grip...
