TO DARKNESS AND TO DEATH: Volume 4

“Spencer-Fleming has brought alive the people and environs of Millers Kill in another riveting mystery.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Quite a departure for Episcopalian priest Clare Ferguson and the man who loves her, police chief Russ Van Alstyne (OUT OF THE DEEP I CRY, 2004, etc.): a Rube Goldberg plot that crams all manner of secrets and crimes into the most hectic 21 hours in Millers Kill’s history.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

OUT OF THE DEEP I CRY: Volume 3

“The author expertly portrays the power of grief, guilt, greed and love and their effect on good people in a story as chilling as the month of March in Millers Kill. A subtle sense of humor further enhances this poignant and provocative mystery.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Amid a host of memorable characters, Clare stands out… Not just fans of ecclesiastical mysteries will have reason to rejoice.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER: Volume 1

“It is a cast readers will hope to meet again, while a fast-paced plot keeps the guess work going until the very end. Along the way, there is an exceptionally spine-chilling confrontation. The vivid setting descriptions will bring plenty of shivers, but the real strength of this stellar first is the focus on the mystery, which will delight traditional fans.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
