Reverend Brian Lucas has a secret his congregation in the Nine Mile Methodist Church knows nothing about, and he'd really like to keep it that way. But even his earth-shattering secret takes a backseat to what else is happening in his tiny hometown.

Murders usually do that.

Brian's "close friend," Sam, is urging a resolution to their little problem, but Brian's brother, Boyd, the County Sheriff, is more caught up in chasing down a homicidal maniac who is slaughtering little old ladies.

When Brian's secret and Boyd's mystery run into each other head on, and Boyd's fifteen-year-old son, Jesse, gets involved, all hell breaks loose. Then a fourth death comes to terrify the town, and it is Brian who begins to see what is taking place in their little corner of the Corn Belt. But even for a Methodist minister, it will take more than prayer to set it right.

A small town Methodist minister finds his congregation in an uproar when murder comes to town. Author John Inman provides a suspenseful story in SUNSET LAKE.

After trying numerous audiobooks, this was the first one that maintained my interest. Part of it can be attributed to the high quality narration. This story lends itself well to the audio format because it is packed with descriptive imagery. As the story progressed, it was easy to create pictures of the characters in my head.

Aside from having a clear "whodunit" theme, the storyline goes much deeper to deal with homosexuality on a religious basis. It wasn't until I had gotten a bit further in the story that I realized there would be detailed sexual encounters. Once again, the author used vivid words and frank language to clearly create each scene. This was the one segment of the book that I think I would have preferred in print rather than audio.

Full of details of small-town life, this was an enjoyable audiobook. Not only did it keep my attention, but I was impressed with how well the author brought the story to life.
