Idyll Fears (2017)
(Thomas Lynch, book 2)
Stephanie Gayle
"Stephanie Gayle proves that she’s in it for the long haul. Thomas Lynch is a fine, nuanced characte - a police chief readers can believe in and root for. The tale is riveting, right up there with the best police procedurals. I highly recommend it!"
