Retired army chaplain Dexter Merriman rides a vintage Harley, has a cat named Baggins and is a dead ringer for Santa Claus. He also has a knack for murder – well, inadvertently getting involved in them, that is, and when Dex finds a dying woman on the side of the road he’s catapulted into a sordid tale of deception.
Dex is determined to hunt down the killer who left a small boy orphaned, but the cast of likely suspects is long. For help he turns to Crazy Maisy, the old woman who lives in the woods; “Beans” Mallozzi, one of the men he counsels through a prison ministry; and, of course, his faith.
About the Author
Liz Dodwell devotes her time to writing and publishing from the home she shares with husband, Alex and a host of rescued dogs and cats, collectively known as "the kids." She will tell you, "I gladly suffer the luxury of working from home where I'm with my "kids," can toss in a load of laundry in between radio interviews, writing, editing, general office work or baking pupcakes (dog treats) while still in my PJs. I love what I do and know how lucky I am to be able to do it. Oh, and if you asked me what my hobbies are, I'd probably say reading murder mysteries, drinking champagne, romantic dinners with my husband and yodeling (just joking about that last one)." Jacob Lee joins Liz in their first collaboration of the Chaplain Merriman series.
