Murder at Markham
Patricia Houck Sprinkle is a Christian author who has been picked up by major publishers. She is much better than your average Christian fiction author. My friend loaned me her copy of Murder at Markham. It appears to be part of a series featuring Sheila Travis, the widow of a diplomat to Japan. The book had enough red herrings to keep you guessing about its outcome. I was a little dissatisfied in the conversation on the last few pages of the book after the mystery had been resolved. I suspect that it was just a set-up to the next book in the series, but it "left you hanging". Overall, it's a pretty good read.
