Stellar....Spencer-Fleming combines a first-rate mystery with flawed but endearing characters. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)Series fans have had a long wait to dive back into Spencer-Fleming's cleverly constructed mysteries, and this ninth entry (following Through the Evil Days, 2013), which delivers a haunting exposure of the town's dark side, won't disappoint. --BooklistA book to escape into, rich and textured. This is the story of families and a community, and from the first page we know we're in safe hands. --Ann Cleeves, New York Times bestselling author of The Long CallI've been waiting eagerly for Julia Spencer-Fleming's new book, and it was well worth the wait. Hid from Our Eyes is an intricate, intense mystery with a chilling ending. The characters, minister Clare Fergusson and police chief Russ Van Alstyne, continue to be complicated and imperfect, just like all of us. This is a five-star experience that shocked me and kept me reading late into the night. --Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling authorA tour de force by Julia Spencer-Fleming. Not only is this a tense mystery unfolding simultaneously in three time periods but it is also a poignant drama touching the flawed and very real main characters. Brava, Julia. --Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of The Tuscan Child, In Farleigh Field, and the Royal Spyness mysteries Welcome back, Clare & Russ! They are back in the 9th Adirondack mystery, and it's a corker--3 almost identical crimes, set decades apart, in a small rural community. Who is killing young women in party dresses and leaving them sprawled on deserted roads? Russ, suspect in the 1970's murder, is now chief of police--can he and Clare solve the case that has baffled 2 previous chiefs? Exciting, tense, romantic--no one writes a small town mystery like Julia Spencer-Fleming! --Susan Taylor, Book House of Stuyvesant PlazaClare and Russ are back and I had no idea how much I missed them until I opened the book!
