Review
A year after becoming sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi, Quinn Colson is faced with a pardoned killer’s return to Jericho. Jamey Dixon now preaches redemption and forgiveness, but the family of the woman he was convicted of killing isn’t buying it. They warn Quinn that his sister’s relationship with Dixon could be fatal. Others don’t think the new preacher is a changed man, either—a couple of dangerous convicts who confided in Dixon about an armored car robbery believe he’s after the money they hid. So they do the only thing they can: break out and head straight to Jericho, leaving a trail of bodies in their wake  Find this title in our catalog!

The Silent Wife
Author
A.S.A Harrison
Review
This book had so much potential, and I expected the author to go "all the way", but I found this book to be disappointing unfortunately. To me, there was a lot of tension built up for an ending that wasn't as shocking as I expected it to be.
