About A Murder in Zion

Beautiful views, deadly encounters

Grief-stricken over her mother’s death and bruised by her failure on her most recent case, Emmeline Helliwell returns to her Utah hometown to heal, regroup, and reconnect with her estranged sister. A special agent with the National Park Service, Emme is determined to turn in her badge and take over her mother’s bakery for a much quieter life . . . until the body of a childhood friend turns up in the Narrows of Zion National Park.

Emme is called in to investigate the death, and the case is too personal for her to turn down. Once the death is ruled a murder, the seemingly simple investigation turns treacherous as clues leading to a dangerous religious cult grow too glaring to ignore.

The pressure intensifies when bodies start to pile up. Emme has to track down the killer before they take more lives, all while juggling a rocky relationship with her sister as they sort through their late mother’s estate.

The beauty of Zion National Park is breathtaking, but it may hide sordid secrets in its depths.

Perfect for fans of C. J. Box andLisa Gardner
