Pressestimmen

Spencer-Fleming does it again! Taut prose, brilliant pacing and two of the most interesting characters around make All Mortal Flesh all the mystery you could desire. (New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner)

In a story as unpredictable as its characters, the resolution takes this series in a direction that should give the good bishop heart palpitations. (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review)

A hybrid amateur sleuth/police procedural with a healthy dose of romance....There's much to recommend this novel, including a pair of personable, complex protagonists. (Boston Globe)

Fans, once they start reading, will hang Do Not Disturb signs on their doors. (Publishers Weekly)

The latest entry in Spencer-Fleming's intelligently written series puts the relationship between Clare and Russ on a new track while once again broaching some thoughtful questions about religion, relationships, and morality in the modern world. (Booklist)

Murder, mystery and scandal are the backbone of this captivating mystery set in the middle of small-town America. The compelling characters bring to life this riveting installment that's quite possibly the best in the series. (Romantic Times (Top Pick!))

[A] dizzying roller coaster of a ride, with one wholly unexpected plot twist after another following in rapid succession. And just when things seem sorted out at last, the author has one last surprise in store for the reader, one that raises all sorts of questions about where the series is headed. (Denver Post)

It's an enjoyable series (despite some grisly crimes) and there's a real pleasure in seeing how Spencer-Fleming moves the pair's friendship with frissons along....It's a snowy, sordid path to the answers. But, like a bad wreck, Spencer-Fleming's fans will be unable to look away. Hang on: It's an unsettling ride and just when you think it's done, there's a last, long, unsettling drop. (Portland Oregonian)

Spencer-Fleming is a fine writer, and she conveys the dizzying blankness of shock as well as anyone. (Houston Chronicle)

Buchrückseite

Obsession. Lies. Two souls destined for love--or death. Emotions explode in the latest novel from multiple award-winning author Julia Spencer-Fleming.


"Intricately plotted…packs plenty of surprises."--Boston Globe


Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne's first encounter with Clare Fergusson was in an emergency room on a freezing December night. A newborn had been left on the steps of the town's Episcopal church, where Clare just happened to be its new priest. That night in the hospital was the beginning of an attraction so fierce, so forbidden, that both Russ and Clare risked compromising all of their ethics and beliefs…


"Captivating."--Publishers Weekly


In the small community of Millers Kill, gossip spreads like wildfire. So when Russ's wife kicks him out of the house, he figures it's nobody's business but his own--until a neighbor stops by and finds Mrs. Van Alstyne's butchered corpse on the kitchen floor. To the townspeople and church folk, the murder is proof that the whispered rumors about the police chief and the priest were true. But nothing is as it seems in Millers Kill, where betrayal twists old friendships--and evil waits inside quaint white clapboard farmhouses…


"A dizzying roller coaster of a ride."--Denver Post

6 von 6 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Griese, Ilka am 6. Mai 2008
Format: Taschenbuch
Mit "All Mortal Flesh" setzt Julia Spencer-Fleming ihre herausragende Krimi-Serie um Russ, den Poliziechef des kleinen nordamerikanischen Örtchens Millers Kill, und Clare, der dortigen Pastorin und ehemaligen Army-Pilotin, fort. "All Mortal Flesh" ist dabei mit Themen wie Schuld, Sühne und Vergebung ihr bisher emotionalster Roman.
Der Plot setzt dabei nahtlos das Geschehen am Ende von "To Darkness and to Death" fort. Russ, der seit dem Geständnis seiner Beziehung zu Clare von seiner Frau getrennt lebt, gerät unter Mordverdacht, als seine Frau Linda mit durchschnittener Kehle und von Messerschnitten entstelltem Gesicht in ihrem Haus aufgefunden wird. Als Clare versucht, den Verdacht gegen Russ zu entkräften, gerät sie aufgrund ihrer Beziehung zu ihm selbst unter Verdacht. Bald erlangt Russ jedoch neue Ansatzpunkte bei seinen Ermittlungen: Was hat die Haustier-Sitterin, auf deren Spur er durch E-mails seiner Frau gelangt, mit dem Fall zu tun? Und handelt es sich bei der Toten tatsächlich um Russ' Frau, oder wurde eine Fremde in seinem Haus ermordet? Für Russ und Clare beginnt ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit, um nicht nur den Mordfall aufzuklären, sondern auch sich selbst vom Verdacht des Mordes reinzuwaschen...
In "All Mortal Flesh" erlangt Julia Spencer-Fleming dabei einmal mehr ein enorm hohes emotionales Niveau. Sie stellt die Zweifel ihrer Protagonisten an der Richtigkeit ihres Liebe zueinander, ihre Schuldgefühle gegenüber Linda und ihre Suche nach Vergebung gekonnt in den Mittelpunkt des Geschehens und verknüpft dies auf einem hohen sprachlichen Niveau, so dass man als Leser einfach mit Russ und Clare mitleiden und -fühlen muss.
Julia Spencer-Flemings Bücher sind für mich jedes Mal wieder ein absolutes Muss, und ich freue mich schon sehr, dass im Juni endlich ihr neuestes Werk "I Shall Not Want" erscheinen wird. Ich bin gespannt, wie es mit Russ und Clare weitergeht!

Hallelujah, Clare and Russ are back 8. Oktober 2006
Von K. M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Or, perhaps I should quote Russ and say, "Christ on a crutch!" I just finished "All Mortal Flesh," and I am torn between joy at the prize of another Clare/Russ novel and mourning over what I read. This powerhouse fifth entry in the series about the feisty female Episcopal priest and the married police chief of Miller's Kill unreels developments galore for the star-crossed duo. The earlier books revolved around tragedies befalling other denizens of this small upstate New York town. Clare and Russ got involved by virtue of their professions and untangled the murderous mysteries. But those misadventures didn't directly dive-bomb our very human heroes. "All Mortal Flesh" does. It *is* about them; it strikes at them -- and their sympathetic readers -- mercilessly.

The first half of the novel delivers one tremendous jolt and another nearly as high on the shock Richter scale, but then advances as pretty straightforward procedural narrative -- making one wonder why another 150 pages might be necessary. Never fear. Suddenly, after a beautifully emotional scene in which Russ and Clare call upon the healing impetus of forgiveness, everything turns on its axis and the story is off and running again at full tilt. I shall not give any plot switchbacks away, but suffice it to say that as one nears the last pages, there is a certain expectation of how the book will conclude and where that might leave priest and chief. However, it never does to assume, especially with the consummately talented Spencer-Fleming choreographing the action. I felt drained and grieved after reading the final pages. I can only hope that we have not seen the last of Clare Fergussen and Russ Van Alstyne.

It was wonderful to visit with the many familiar faces we've come to know, including the MK police officers, the church assistant, Russ's mom, Father Aberforth, and others. The new woman deacon and woman state police investigator added zing and zest, as did the reporter, Ben Beagle (love that name). And, as always, Spencer-Fleming peppers the pages with humor now and then, adding just the right light seasoning. Still, "All Mortal Flesh" is no comedy. Not. At. All. We are starkly reminded that sometimes the vagaries of life and death blow away the best intentions of the best-intentioned and honorable people.

Read it.

The Breakout Novel in the Series 6. Januar 2007
Von Dr. Cathy Goodwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
All Mortal Flesh raises Spencer-Fleming's series to a new level. The plot moves quickly, the pacing is brilliant, characters are 3-dimensional and the environment comes alive. Nearly every page introduces a new element of conflict. Nothing goes right for the main characters. Plot twists aqre surprising but logical and the author plays fair. If you read very carefully, the outcome will not be a total surprise: she plants hints all along the way. At the end, we're left sharing the strong emotions of the main characters.

Clare, returning from a weeklong retreat in the woods,gets an urgent message: Russ's wife is dead and he is a logical suspect. She's already under scrutiny from her bishop, who sends a new deacon to provide a combination of parish resource, baby-sitter and spy. All characters -- especially the women -- have contradictions and quirks that move the story along.

I particularly admire the way Spencer-Fleming presents the agony of Clare and Russ: two people who seem born to be soulmates but separated by Russ's marriage and Clare's priestly role.

I'd like to see more of Clare's background incorporated into her everyday life. Ten years as an Army helicopter pilot would be wonderful preparation for counseling and especially for leadership. At the same time, as other readers have noted, she doesn't seem much of a reader (although we get brief references to Purcell and Elgar music - perfect for an Anglican pastor!). Episcopalians tend to like fairly intellectual clergy. When I've visited Episcopal churches, sermons are filled with references to all sorts of books, articles and ideas, seemingly targeted to parishioners with graduate degrees. It's traditionally an upscale denomination. Would an action-oriented former Army pilot fit in? How did she get past the discernment committee, which is mentioned here in another context?

Then again, given the shortage of priests, I wonder if Clare's conduct would really evoke such strong scrutiny, unless the parishioners objected. It would be interesting to get some review comments from Episcopal clergy and/or active members.

For the ordinary reader, Spencer-Fleming has earned her stripes as a breakout author. This book could be a model in a mystery writing course. I'll be eager to see the next one.

One of the best mysteries I have ever read 7. Oktober 2006
Von R. Kyle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"In the Bleak Midwinter" thoroughly hooked me on the series. Luckily, I found this book after the fifth volume was out, because I have literally devoured all five books in about a week.

Julia Spencer-Fleming creates compelling characters in Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne and Anglican Priest, Reverand Clare Fergusson. The pair fall in love in the first book, hopelessly in love--since Russ has been married to a very beautiful woman for the past 25 years.

In this fifth (and hopefully not last) book, Clare and Russ have vowed to stay apart. Clare is under disciplinary action from her archdiocese and gossip in their small NY town is running rampant.

They might have kept that oath to stay apart, save that Linda Van Alstyne's wife is found butchered in their home and of course the Chief is the prime suspect. Clare has to come to help and emotions run wild both wanting to be together and suffering from guilt because of the death.

This description makes the book seem like a romance novel. It's really not---while the characters relationship is key to the plot, the mystery stands above all else and is supported by a strong foundation of secondary plots and characters.

Other reviewers are right. Bring a box of tissue with you when you read this book. It will break your heart.

Don't Read Without a Box of Tissues Nearby 6. Oktober 2006
Von Thomas H. Griffith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I haven't wept so much while reading a book, ever.

Julia Spencer-Fleming has done it again: written a book that is both a compelling read and with characters that are so real that it is hard to remember they are fictional. I sit and stand in awe of her ability as a writer.

This book is hard to categorize. Its two main characters are: a) the Rev. Clare Fergusson, an Episcopalian priest in a small town in upstate New York. That being said, it could be categorized as an "amateur sleuth" novel. But b) the other character is Russ Van Alystyne, police chief in this same small town. That being said, it could be categorized as a "police procedural" novel. However, the two are very much in love with each other, even though she is single and he is married. Would that make it a "Romantic Suspense" novel? And this time, evidence shows that Russ' wife has been murdered. How does a police chief whose spouse has been murdered avoid being considered a suspect? That would make it a mystery from the perspective of the "wrongly accused." Add to that the fact that Russ is in love with his wife as much as he is with the Rev. Clare. And that his wife is not evil, but just as good as the Rev. Clare. And the fact that Russ and Clare themselves each are human beings who do their best to live moral lives--and each is forced to do something they never would have chosen to do had not circumstances given them no other choice. This brings us into the realm of mythological plotting.

Then, add in the theological overtones of how each character is living out the role of awareness, proclamation, arrest, and crucifixion--each within the realm of their own respective callings--a fact lifted up by the presence of the hymn that gave rise to the title. "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence" is a hymn for Holy Week--a hymn that calls to mind Christ's sacrifice, even though he was without sin. That hymn brought this book very close to my own life and faith. I recognize, from the perspective of a pastor, what it means to try to live within one's calling and still be allowed to be human. And how institutions, both church and secular, almost have to dehumanize their leaders for the sake of maintaining a healthy institution. Yes, I wept. I was weeping by the time I got to chapter 6, and couldn't read the rest of the book without a hanky in hand.

This is the fifth book in the series that Julia Spencer-Fleming started with "In the Bleak Midwinter." All five have hymns as the impetus for titles. So far, Ms. Spencer-Fleming has brought us from awareness to proclamation to arrest and crucifixion. I can only hope that the next book or two in this series will bring us full circle to resurrection--and that it might be entitled "...Risen Today."

Please, Ms. Spencer-Fleming. Write another book. I was grief stricken at the end of All Mortal Flesh. The book tore my heart. Which is a rare event for me. I would dearly love to read that Russ and Clare find some way back to each other. Write fast.
