I SHALL NOT WANT
In this edge-of-your-seat ride through the small town of Millers Kill, N.Y., violence travels rapidly and tensions escalate into an explosive showdown. Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne and Episcopalian Reverend Clare Fergusson work together to solve a complex mystery while also dealing with their feelings for each other. Danger and violence contrast with good, strong, emotionally deep characters to make this a great novel.
When a van carrying illegal immigrants is shot at and crashes, it sets in motion a chain of events that uncovers a lethal crime ring operating in Millers Kill. When several Mexican men are found dead, fears escalate, and Clare and Russ must work quickly to unravel a mystery involving a Mexican gang, bad drug deals and a local family of good ol' boys with not-so-good intentions.
