There are any number of flashy words I could pull from my thesaurus to describe this latest book in the Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mystery series, and yet none are adequate. From the opening chapter, Julia Spencer-Fleming delves into the lives of her characters and takes the reader deep inside the story.

This story is by far the most personal for Clare and Russ as they struggle to overcome the everyday problems of dealing with tragedy. Caught in their own web of emotional trauma, the murder of Russ' wife only intensifies the drama as they struggle against forbidden feelings.

Just when you think you've leveled off in your reading pace, the secondary characters take on lives of their own and weave yet another aspect of intrigue and deception, sending you into a tailspin.

Julia Spencer-Fleming is what every writer should aspire to. Her chilling description will have readers cringing in their favorite chair while they devour page after page. Packed with one wicked twist after another, ALL MORTAL FLESH is one hell of a book!
