Description

Informationen zum Autor Mette Ivie Harrison is the author of the Linda Wallheim mysteries, including The Bishop's Wife and For Time and All Eternities. She holds a PhD in German literature from Princeton University and is a nationally ranked triathlete. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she lives in Utah with her husband and five children. From the Hardcover edition. Klappentext In the follow-up to the controversial and critically acclaimed mystery The Bishop's Wife, Mormon housewife Linda Wallheim finds herself ruffling feathers in Draper, Utah, as she assists a murder investigation that is being derailed by transphobia within the LDS community. In Draper, Utah, a tight-knit Mormon community is thrown into upheaval when their ward's second counselor-one of the bishop's right-hand men-is found dead in an elaborately staged murder on church property. Carl Ashby was known as a devout Mormon, a pillar of the community, and a loving husband and father. Who would want him dead? Linda Wallheim, the wife of the ward's bishop, can't rest as long as the ward is suffering. She is particularly worried about Carl's grieving family. But the entire case is turned upside down by the autopsy report, which reveals Carl Ashby was a biological female. In the Mormon church, where gender is considered part of a person's soul, some people regard transgenderism as one of the worst possible sins. Church officials seem to be more upset by Carl's gender than by his murder, and more concerned with hushing up the story than solving the crime. Linda realizes that if the police are to catch the killer, they are going to need an ally on the inside-and she is the only one who can help. Carl was living a life of secrecy for twenty years. What else was he hiding-and can Linda ferret out the key to his death before the rumors tear her community apart? From the Hardcover edition.
