Description

I Shall Not Want is the sixth in Julia Spencer-Fleming's New York Times bestselling series—the strongest in the Russ Van Alstyne and Clare Fergusson novels—is a great entry into this beloved series.
In the searing conclusion to All Mortal Flesh, Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne's precarious balance between duty and desire was broken by his wife's tragic death. Now, Russ and Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson are separated by a wall of guilt and grief. When a farmhand stumbles over a body, Clare is reluctantly drawn into the investigation through her involvement with the migrant community. The discovery of two more bodies could mean a serial killer is on the loose. As spring turns into summer, Russ is plagued by media hysteria, conflict within the police department, and a series of baffling assaults.
Throughout the escalating tensions, emotions are fueled as Russ and Clare find themselves seeking each other out, even as they intend to keep distant.
With new packaging, fans new and old will welcome this stunning edition as a refresher or an entry in this beloved series.
*BONUS CONTENT: This edition of I Shall Not Want includes a new introduction from the author and a discussion guide

        March 24, 2008
        At the start of Anthony-winner Spencer-Fleming’s solid sixth mystery to feature Clare Fergusson, an Episcopal priest, and Russ Van Alstyne, her police chief admirer, Clare and Russ are still trying to recover from the death of Russ’s wife, Linda, in All Mortal Flesh
        (2006). Clare and Russ do their best to steer clear of each other in the small town of Millers Kill, N.Y., but when a van carrying Mexican migrant workers en route to jobs at local farms is ambushed, the pair find themselves caught up in an investigation of drug smuggling and gang turf wars. After a number of Latino corpses turn up, Clare and Russ begin to question whether trouble followed the migrant workers or if it’s the work of someone closer to home. While the plot takes some implausible turns, Clare and Russ’s complex romantic dance is as compelling as ever. The cliffhanger ending will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next installment in this notable regional series.

        Starred review from June 1, 2008
        If last year's "All Mortal Flesh" was a shocker, this time Agatha and Anthony Award winner Spencer-Fleming has prepared a feast for fans of action-packed crime fiction. Investigating the murders of several Hispanic migrant workers, Russ Van Alstyne, the police chief of Millers Kill, NY, uses every resource he has to find the killer. This means turning to his two newest hires and his old lover, Episcopal minister Clare Ferguson, who has been involved with the migrant community. A bruised Clare must also work through her emotions regarding Van Alstyne. Another suspenseful and involving mystery from an outstanding writer. [See Prepub Mystery, "LJ" 2/1/08.]

        Starred review from May 1, 2008
        A suspected serial killer in the town of Millers Kill in Upstate New York takes a backseat to the simmering relationship between Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne and Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson in the sixth entry in this tantalizing series. Emotions are raw between the two in the aftermath of a lethal hostage situation and the death of Russ wife, Linda, in All Mortal Flesh (2006), so they seek diversion (including Clares joining the National Guard) and try to avoid each other. But the priest, feisty almost to the point of being foolhardy, is always in the thick of things, as when bodies of Latino men start turning up. Spencer-Fleming poses the issue of immigration, showing how the hiring of undocumented migrant workers impacts the Van Alstyne family; and she introduces an appealing new character, single mother Hadley Knox, granddaughter of the Episcopal church sexton, who joins the police force and captivates fellow officer Kevin Flynn. Action rachets up in a deadly shoot-out with drug-dealing Latino gangbangers, and just when resolution seems within reach, theres a final twist. Keenly moving and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, this is a tour de force in a series that seems to have jumped several levels in quality.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2008, American Library Association.)
