Melissa Lenhardt
Fiction: Mystery/Crime
Named a Library Journal debut of the month and a finalist for the 2014 Whidbey Writers’ MFA Alumni Emerging Writers Contest, STILLWATER launches the series with former FBI agent Jack McBride as he takes a Chief of Police job in a Texas small town to start a new life away from the suspicions that surrounded his wife’s disappearance, and within a week he is investigating a staged murder-suicide, and unearths shattering secrets long buried that will rattle the town to its core. In THE FISHER KING, Jack discovers that a successful local businessman is the biggest crime lord in the county, and, with murders piling up and the drug war intensifying, he suspects the crimes aren’t business but personal—and he’s the target.
