THE LAST CLINIC BY GARY GUSICK

The last clinic

( The Preacher’s Murder )

Outside the local women’s health clinic, the Reverend Jimmy Aldridge waving his protest sign is a familiar sight. But that changes early one morning when someone shoots the beloved Reverend dead.

Sheriff Shelby Mitchell knows the preacher’s murder will shock the good people of Jackson – and the pressure to find the killer is immediate and intense, which is why Shelby calls in detective Darla Cavannah.

When the police detective Darla moved from Philadelphia to Jackson with her husband – hometown football hero Hugh “the Glue” Cavannah – she never imagined the culture shock that awaited. Then after Hugh dies in a car crash, Darla enters a self-imposed exile in her Mississippi home, taking a leave of absence from the sheriff’s department.

Now she’s called back to duty or coerced, more like it, with Shelby slathering on his goog-ole-boy charm nice and thick, like on a helping of barbecue. Reluctantly partnered with a mushlish, Elvis impersonator, Darla keeps a cool head even as the community demands an arrest.

The court of public opinion has already convicted the clinic’s doctor, Stephen Nicolettei, but Darla is just as sure he’s not guilty – even as she fights her growing attraction to him. From the genteel suburbs to a raunchy strip club, Darla follows a trail of dirty money and nasty secrets – until the day of judgement comes, and she face a down an ungodly assassin.
