Publisher's Summary

A Small Case of Murder is set in the quaint town of Chester, West Virginia, where everyone knows everyone, and there is never a secret that someone doesn't know. In such a small intimate village, how many disappearances can be left unquestioned? Following the death of his wife, Joshua Thornton moves into his ancestral home across country with his five children. While clearing out the attic, the children find a 34-year-old letter to their grandmother that implicates a local minister in an unreported murder. Today a double homicide has the whole town under a microscope. The state attorney general appoints Joshua special prosecutor to solve the crimes. In a place where gossip flies as swiftly as a spring breeze it is impossible to know who to trust. Asking simple questions about events long ago could prove to be deadly for Joshua and his family.

Suspend All Disbelief

This book went from implausible to totally ridiculous. In the middle, I suddenly thought that perhaps I had picked a children's adventure story before realising that some of the previous content made that impossible. It ends like a really dreadful detective B movie of the fifties. If you want a real crime/thriller this is not for you.
