Description
"One of the most fun mysteries I've read in years. Thumbs up to Jeff Abbott's delightful debut novel."--Carolyn G. Hart After a few good years of city life, Jordan Poteet returns to his small hometown of Mirabeau, Texas, to work as a librarian. Yet his quet domesticity is shattered when he locks horns with Ms. Beta Harcher, the town's prize religious fanatic, in a knock-down drag-out battle over censorship. When Jordan finds her murdered body in the library, he learns that Beta dead is much more dangerous than she ever was alive. Not only for poor Jordy, whom the police are itching to throw the book at, but for countless others. In fact, thanks to a cryptic list the police find stashed next to her fanatical heart, Beta Harcher has the whole town in a death grip. . . . Praise for Do Unto Others "A haunting story of a small Texas town overflowing with decade upon decade of dark secrets." --R. D. Zimmerman "For ages I've been saying that fame and fortune awaited the man who could write charming and funny mysteries set in small-town America. When I read Jeff Abbott's Do Unto Others , I knew that the position had been filled." --Sharyn McCrumb
