It begins with the shooting of Reverend Jimmy Aldridge outside the Jackson Women’s Health Clinic. But that was just the tip of the so-called iceberg. It was a mystery that would stretch from Jackson, Mississippi across the United States. At the midst of the crime spree was range of rich and conservative politicians - willing to solve their biggest problem.
Though Detective Darla Cavannah is forced to work with Tommy Reylander, the less than smart nephew of the mayor, on the case. Tommy comes with a hidden agenda that will drive his half of the investigation - he knows who the murderer is. Darla begins working with forensic IT specialist and intern Uther Pendragon Johnson (yes, he was named after King Arthur’s father) to locate the evidence to prove who murdered the Reverend Aldridge.
Along the way, the book explores the many sides of the abortion debate. Though the book takes no specific position, it did help this reader see the multiple opinions that define the debate.
The combination of mystery and the exploration of the abortion debate make for a readable and engaging story.
