Note: I received an advance-release copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

My Review: Frank Lyle is called on when the mutilated body of a clergyman is discovered. His team bands together to uncover secrets from Reverend Hayes' life in hopes his troubled past will give them clues as to who might have killed him. This case has Frank Lyle on edge and it doesn't help that an anonymous note delivered to his home casts uncertainty about his own family's safety. Time is of the essence and more people might be in danger than Lyle realized.

This is probably my favorite Frank Lyle mystery. It's by far the most complex and fast-paced story of the bunch. Frank is still true to character--he's loyal to his team, protective of his family, intelligent, and brave. Like the other Frank Lyle novels, the story takes a look at his personal life. We revisit a character from the past (Jez in Second Chances) and Frank finds some resolution in their relationship. We also experience Jayseera's struggles to reconcile her love of career with her love of family. Any mother who has ever faced the difficult task of leaving their new baby to go back to work will appreciate this subplot. Frank's struggle to balance family and career was something that created real conflict in Second Chances, but he seems to have found balance in this novel even though family and career dynamics are constantly changing.

This novel is as well-crafted and thoroughly researched as the previously novels in the series, but there's something very special about this book. Maybe it's because I feel like I know Frank and the other characters so well it's like reading about family. Or maybe it's because I read all three books back to back and witnessed how the author's writing style improved and evolved from book to book. I'll certainly be the first to buy the next book in the series. I'm hooked.

Having enjoyed Juliet B Madison's previous books,I looked forward to reading this one. I have to say it didn't disappoint. There was plenty of action, building to an exciting finale. I couldn't put it down. I think it's her best book to date.

The third in the British D.I. Frank Lyle mystery series, and boy is this one a doozy. High on the eeeuuuie scale -- shades of Criminal Minds!

A time of the big Diocesan ecumenical conference in Ashbeck. An Anglican priest is found murdered in the churchyard of St. Luke's. OK. Not just murdered. But mutilated in a truly ugggggg way.

Why would someone want to not only murder a clergyman, but in such a vicious manner? Why, indeed? Could it have been another cleric? The town was filled with visiting clergy. Could be anyone, but it was definitely personal.

Well, since the other D.I. in the department is away on his honeymoon, Superintendent Kingsley brought in Canon Thomas Rice who used to be a DS at York before leaving the police force for the church, to help out and be a liaison with the religious community, and in addition she brought in a DCI from the department in Oxford to help out. And boy, is he creepy! In so many ways.

The search for the killer is a difficult one, and the police are having trouble finding a starting point. But as one thing after another comes to light, we begin to see where we might have a suspect.

Once again, DI Lyle works the evidence and his resources to bring this case to a conclusion, but not without suffering a ............

OK. That's all you get. Go read the book. And ponder on the amount of crazy it takes to become less than human. Not as much as you might think.
