I have enjoyed this mystery series featuring titles drawn from old hymns. Who would not love a female Episcopal priest, former military helicopter pilot? A chief of police with years in the military during Vietnam? Well, maybe some would not, but I do!

The priest Clare and the Chief of Police Russ complement each other like bread and butter. There is the almost "forbidden love" nature of the story, which adds its own appeal, and the latest murder mystery. This time, illegal immigrants are the targets, and good ol' boy rednecks are somehow involved. Clare continues to try to bring the message of Christian love and acceptance to all people, her church's vestry especially. As usual, however, the vestry objects to her involvement with and aid to illegal immigrants, including the sanctuary she provides to an especially targeted and vulnerable Hispanic boy.
