Keep your eyes on Linda Hall. She's written a winner in this first installment of the Teri Blake-Addison mystery series. Famous pastor and author Carl Houseman hires Teri, an ex-cop turned private eye, to look into the death of his wife in a sailing accident five years ago. No body was found.
Teri can sympathize. Her own mother disappeared during a trip to the grocery store. So Teri kisses her professor husband goodbye and heads for Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick, Canada, where the accident took place. A straightforward death at sea soon takes on ugly nuances of adultery, murder and betrayal that reach into the highest echelons of Houseman's ministry.
The oddest twist of allcould Carl's wife, Ellen, still be alive? An intriguing plot, strong characterization and a fascinating setting keep the reader engrossed. (May, 290 pp., $11.99)
