Hot Pick of the Month

The Tempest: A Bowers & Hunter Mystery by James Lilliefors (book 2)

James Lilliefors’s unlikely detective duo, Pastor Luke Bowers and homicide investigator Amy Hunter, return in a new murder mystery set in Maryland’s picturesque Tidewater County.
Tourists like Susan Champlain pass though the Chesapeake Bay region every year.  But when Susan pays Pastor Luke a visit, he’s disturbed by what she shares with him.  Her husband has a short temper, she says, and recently threatened to make her “disappear” because of a photo Susan took on her phone.

Luke is concerned enough to tip off Tidewater County’s chief homicide investigator, Amy Hunter.  That night Susan’s body is found at the foot of the Widow’s Point bluff.  Hunter soon discovers Susan left behind clues that may connect her fate to a series of killings in the Northeast, powerful criminal enterprise, and to a missing Rembrandt masterpiece, The Storm on the Sea of Galilee.

Whoever is behind the killings has created a storm of deception and betrayal, a deliberate “tempest” designed to obscure the truth.  Now Hunter and Bowers must join forces to trace the dangerous secret glimpsed in Susan’s photo.  But will they be the next targets on a killer’s deadly agenda….?
