Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Newly married (and pregnant) Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson and Miller’s Kill Police Chief Russ van Alstyne are grateful for the solitude of their ice-fishing honeymoon, as they both have a tangle of professional and personal complications to sort. But soon after they arrive, a snowstorm begins burying the region. As the honeymooners make preparations to depart, they encounter a pair of cagey meth heads and find themselves battling criminals and the elements. In the meantime, Miller’s Kill is left without Russ to solve the murders of local foster parents and the disappearance of their foster child. Officers Hadley Knox and Kevin Flynn, awkward after an ill-advised fling, are forced to struggle together against terrified witnesses and blizzard conditions to reveal the kidnapping’s connection to a local methamphetamine kingpin. This novel, the eighth starring Clare Fergusson and Russ van Alstyne, is among the best in the series, combining steady action with complex, sympathetic characters and an immersive setting. Clare and Russ are an unusual but fitting pair, and Spencer-Fleming perfectly captures the contrasting emotions of love and frustration that define marriage. Readers seeking tales of city crime reaching small towns will love the well-crafted setting and story but shouldn’t expect a cozy; there’s plenty of grit here. --Christine Tran

Review

“This novel....is among the best in the series, combining steady action with complex, sympathetic characters and an immersive setting. Clare and Russ are an unusual but fitting pair, and Spencer-Fleming perfectly captures the contrasting emotions of love and frustration that define marriage. Readers seeking tales of city crime reaching small towns will love the well-crafted setting and story but shouldn't expect a cozy; there's plenty of grit here.” ―Booklist (starred review)

Through the Evil Days is both a powerful psychological thriller and a pulse-pounding action adventure that shows us once again why Julia Spencer-Fleming is one of our finest writers of suspense.” ―Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets

“Thrilling, chilling and the suspense is killing.” ―Val McDermid

Through the Evil Days is an exceptionally fine addition to an already accomplished series. Julia Spencer-Fleming is one of mystery fiction's treasures.” ―John Connolly

“It's amazing Spencer-Fleming manages to carry off a layered plot that opens with an arson, a double homicide and a kidnapping and expands into a broader picture of the drug use, domestic violence and desolation squeezing the life out of this small town.” ―Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

Through the Evil Days is deep, rich, and compelling--and as chilling as hell. Julia Spencer-Fleming has written a masterful novel.” ―Meg Gardiner, author of The Shadow Tracer

“Tense, stylish and accomplished: In Through the Evil Days Julia Spencer-Fleming delivers a very enjoyable mystery thriller.” ―S.J. Bolton

Through the Evil Days is a treat for hardcore Spencer-Fleming fans and newcomers alike. It leaves only one question unanswered: how long do we have to wait for the next one?” ―New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig

“A story of greed, betrayal, and wounded love, One Was a Soldier left me entertained, satisfied, and a shade wiser about the cost of war.” ―John Hart, New York Times bestselling author, on One Was a Soldier

One Was a Soldier is one of her best and most heartfelt in this superior series.” ―Florida Sun Sentinel on One Was a Soldier

“Spencer-Fleming's fans who have been waiting eagerly for her latest won't be disappointed; this series, as intelligent as it is enthralling, just keeps getting better.” ―Booklist (starred review) on One Was a Soldier

“An absolute tour de force! Both a superb murder mystery and a gripping examination of the suffering of returning soldiers.” ―Louise Penny, New York Times bestselling author, on One Was a Soldier

“Spencer-Fleming knows her craft, which lends authority to the subsequent investigation. But it's character that really counts here.” ―The New York Times Book Review on One Was a Soldier

“In the hands of a lesser writer, this novel would not fly, but Spencer-Fleming carries it off and concludes with a believable resolution. Outstanding.” ―Library Journal (starred review) on One Was a Soldier

“Spencer-Fleming's most ambitious book yet - think The Best Years of Our Lives with corpses....fans will continue to be impressed by her resourceful determination never to tell the same story twice.” ―Booklist (starred review) on One Was a Soldier
