I Shall Not Want is the sixth in Julia Spencer-Fleming's New York Times bestselling series—the strongest in the Russ Van Alstyne and Clare Fergusson novels—is a great entry into this beloved series.

In the searing conclusion to All Mortal Flesh, Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne’s precarious balance between duty and desire was broken by his wife’s tragic death. Now, Russ and Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson are separated by a wall of guilt and grief. When a farmhand stumbles over a body, Clare is reluctantly drawn into the investigation through her involvement with the migrant community. The discovery of two more bodies could mean a serial killer is on the loose. As spring turns into summer, Russ is plagued by media hysteria, conflict within the police department, and a series of baffling assaults.

Throughout the escalating tensions, emotions are fueled as Russ and Clare find themselves seeking each other out, even as they intend to keep distant.

With new packaging, fans new and old will welcome this stunning edition as a refresher or an entry in this beloved series.

Praise for I Shall Not Want

“A suspected serial killer in the town of Millers Kill in Upstate New York takes a backseat to the simmering relationship between Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne and Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson in the sixth entry in this tantalizing series...Action rachets up in a deadly shoot-out...and just when resolution seems within reach, there's a final twist. Keenly moving and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, this is a tour de force in a series that seems to have jumped several levels in quality.” —Booklist (starred review) -
