The fourth installment in Mette Ivie Harrison's
nationally bestselling Linda Wallheim mystery series, set in
Mormon Utah, explores the effects of alienation,
immigration, and extortion from the inner workings of the
Now that all five of her sons have left home, Mormon
bishop’s wife Linda Wallheim has quite a bit of time on her
hands, most of which she spends worrying about the state of
the country and how her youngest son, Samuel, who is openly
gay, is faring on his mission in Boston. She has also become
close with one of the women in her ward, Gwen Ferris.
But Gwen is quickly losing faith in the church, and her
issues with the Mormon power structure are only reinforced
by her work in Draper’s local “Spanish ward.” The ward’s
members comprise both legal and undocumented immigrants who
aren’t always getting the community support they should be
from their church.
When Gabriela Gonzalez, a young mother and Gwen’s friend in
the Spanish Ward, is found strangled at a gas station, Gwen
is paralyzed with guilt. The dead woman’s last phone call
was to Gwen, and her voice mail reveals that she knew she
was in danger. When Gwen decides the police aren’t doing
enough to get justice for Gabriela, who was undocumented,
she decides to find the killer herself. Linda reluctantly
takes part in Gwen’s vigilante sleuthing, fearing for her
young friend’s safety, but what the pair discovers may put
them both in danger.
