What We’re Reading: Mystery Book Club November 2020
The Mystery Book Club recently read All Mortal Flesh by Julia Spencer-Fleming. It’s the 5th book in her Clare Fergusson/Russ VanAlstyne mystery series. Miller’s Kill, NY Police Chief Ross VanAlstyne admits to his wife Linda that he is attracted to Reverend Clare Fergusson. Linda kicks him out of the house and soon after she is murdered. Russ is the prime suspect.
Here’s what members of the Mystery Book Club had to say about it.
