THE BIG CHILLWhat really happened that tragic Valentine’s night on Lake Erie? No one knows. Three old buddies–reckless Matty, successful Clark, clever Val–decided to cap Val’s birthday celebration with a stroll across the frozen lake. They never returned. Matty’s scarf was found snagged on broken ice.After the thaw, only the bodies of Clark and Matty are recovered–the latter with a bullet in it. Val remains missing, now a murder suspect. His desperate wife pleads with ex-nun investigator Christine Bennett to find him and prove his innocence.A tall order, especially when Chris starts hunting for clues in the lives of these respectable suburbanites and their wives. And when she closes in on a truth that chills her to the bone, she suddenly finds herself skating on very thin ice.
Lee Harris is the author of the mystery novels featuring ex-nun Christine Bennett, who first appeared in The Good Friday Murder, an Edgar Award nominee. She also writes the New York Mysteries, which debuted with Murder in Hell’s Kitchen. In… More about Lee Harris
I always look forward to a new mystery by Lee Harris. Her novels about ex-nun Christine Bennett are in that central range between cozy and hardboiled — the perfect balance. Ever since I encountered Christine Bennett in THE GOOD FRIDAY MURDER, which was nominated for an Edgar Award as best first novel, I’ve been fascinated by the author’s depiction and development of her heroine — Christine matures in surprising (but always believeable ways) as the series continues. It would be hard to pick my favorite Lee Harris mystery, but certainly among my favorites is THE CHRISTENING DAY MURDER, in which a thirty-year-old unsolved murder has impact on present-day menace. –Joe Blades, Associate Publisher
