The Judas Tree

(The second book in the Father Grif Mystery series)
A novel by

An Edge-of-Your-Seat Mystery Uncovering a Long-Buried Secret Threatens a Quiet Community

Mystery lovers and fans of great literature alike will be thrilled by the newest release of D.J. Delffs, The Judas Tree. Set in the sleepy, college town of Avenell the book features the return of Father Griffen Reed, a priest with a nose for mystery and a deep love for the community to whom he ministers.

When Leah Schroeder, fiancée of young curate Peter Abernathy, finds the body of Dr. Simon Hotstetler hanging from a legendary oak outside the Amish community of Tremont, Father Griffin Reed is again called in to assist with the mystery. As the investigation deepens, layers of secrets come together like pieces of a quilt: a clandestine affair that split the community and ended in death twenty-five years before; an unexpected rejection of values; a young victim carrying the guilt of his father's death; and one person's commitment to vengeance no matter the costs.

Simultaneously, Father Grif must trust God to hold a divided body of faith together as different denominations attempt to plan a community Easter service. When his deepening relationship with Dr. Caroline Barr, his sister's romantic interest in a pastor, and the possibility of Pete Abernathy's departure become points of contention for a planning committee, Father Grif learns how even petty differences can become malignant.
