Harmless As Doves
July 2, 2012 - Amy Phelps
P.L. Gaus goes back to Amish Country for another mystery in "Harmless As Doves."
The small community of Holmes County is rocked when Bishop Leon Shetler gets Crist Burkholder's confession that he just killed a man - Glenn Spiegle. Both men were vying for the attention of Vesta Miller, and Crist claims that he hit Glenn after he attempted to bribe him to leave Vesta alone. This brings in the local sheriff Bruce Robertson to investigate, though he still can't believe Crist could be a murderer. But when the evidence comes out that the first blow didn't kill Glenn, then who came later and beat him to death? It's up to Professor Mike Branden and Detective Ricky Niell to further investigate the case, linking the murder to that of two others in Florida...
This is a page turning mystery that keeps the suspense up until the last page.
"Harmless As Doves" is published by Plume. It is 193 $14 and 193 pages long.
