Three years after his wife's abduction, Pastor Cooper Dupree still believed Sarah could be found. Although the amount of blood at the crime scene pointed to her not surviving the attack, she was still considered by the detectives to be just 'missing'. His wife's disappearance had nearly driven him from the ministry; finding her murderer was an obsession-the first of several investigations that would consume him. Working directly with the Pascagoula Mississippi Police Department, Dupree consults on cases with religious implications, using his keen intellect, expert knowledge of Scripture, and a little help from above to bring justice to this small post-Katrina coastal community. Now, three months since his last case, he is called to look into the homicide of Jerry Hargood, a man found dead in a disturbing mock crucifixion. It's the handiwork of deranged pscychopath Kenneth Schultz, who believes murder a necessary tool for instilling fear and, ultimately, salvation. Thou Shalt Not Murder is the first novel in the Thou Shalt Not series, featuring the young, charismatic Pastor Cooper Dupree as the detective/preacher. In this suspense-filled drama, Dupree must uncover the evil truth about Schultz and his twisted view of redemption, before he strikes his next victim. Along the way, a diverse cast struggles with the inherent similarities between murder, addiction, and love. But how they're all connected to one another-and entangled in this chilling murderer's plans-remains to be seen as this pulse-pounding plot unfolds.
