The third book in the Alvin mystery series will be out June 26!
So far, we’ve had one major review of the book. Publisher’s Weekly says it’s “Engaging… Readers will keep guessing whodunit until the end.”
A Thorn Among the Lilies is the most exciting title in the series to date. Fans of Abe, Dewey, Leah, and Carry won’t want to miss this one.
From the back cover: “Detective Leah Teal is privy to most of the secrets in her hometown of Alvin, but there are always surprises to be had. Like the day she agrees to take her daughter, Caroline, to see a psychic for a reading. The psychic hones in on Leah instead, hinting at a string of gruesome killings and insisting that Leah intervenes to prevent more deaths.
When you go looking for trouble, you never know how much you’ll find. Sure enough, the psychic’s scant clues lead Leah to a cold case from six years ago. A young woman was found shot to death in nearby woods, her eyelids sewn shut and her arms brutally broken. As Leah digs deeper into old files from neighboring towns, a second unsolved case surfaces with the same grisly pattern, then a third. While her shrewd young son, Abe, observes from the sidelines, Leah races to prevent another horrific murder, unaware of just how deep the roots of evill can go.
Taut, suspenseful, and rich in Southern atmosphere, A Thorn Among the Lilies is a mesmerizing novel of loss and vengeance, and the lengths some will go to out of loyalty and love.
“In Michael Hiebert’s haunting and powerful novel, a long-ago tragedy echoes through small-town Alabama as one woman tries to track down a serial killer.”
With the release of A Thorn Among the Lilies, Kensington will be dropping the price of the e-book versions of Close to the Broken Hearted and Dream with Little Angels to $13.50 and $12.99, respectively.
