"Now that they're married and pregnant--not in that order--Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson and Millers Kill Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne ... are in for the honeymoon from hell. Mikayla Johnson has gone missing. The outlook is bleak, since whoever took her evidently shot her foster parents, retired federal agents Ted and Helen MacAllen, and torched their house, making sure to do an especially thorough job. Since Mikayla, 8, had a liver transplant not long ago, she's on a complicated regimen of immunosuppressants, and if she doesn't keep up with them, she'll die. As the Millers Kill Police Department begins their ticking-clock search for the missing child who's been abandoned by her meth-head mother, Annie, and her abusive ex-con father, Hector DeJean, ... they pick up chilling hints that her disappearance may be linked to Annie's well-connected drug supplier Tim LaMar. Meanwhile, there's trouble aplenty on the homefront."--Kirkus Reviews.

Reasonably fast paced; kept my interest;however, the events, in some instances seemed highly unlikely. I can't see professional police officers making some of the decisions that these ones did.

This book was so exciting I could hardly put it down! I have enjoyed this entire series, but this one was action-packed. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Once again, Spencer-Fleming writes a novel I can't put down. And it was a perfect snowy day to read this mystery which occurs during a terrible snow and ice storm in upstate New York.
An eight-year-old girl, recent recipient of a kidney donation, is abducted from the foster home she is living in, with an attempt to cover up the evidence with a fire.
Russ and Clare are supposed to be on their honeymoon, trying out a remote cabin with an eye to buying it. Russ has some ice-fishing in mind, and both have a lot on their minds.
With the abduction news coming after the two are away, weather stymies their return to Millers Kill, and threatens their lives.
There is much drama here, with a little girl's life in the balance and a large drug operation at the center.
A side story between the two young Millers Kill police officers Hadley and Kevin also moves forward in an interesting way.
A well-done installation in one of my favourite mystery series.

Excellent continuation of this series. I absolutely love following the relationship of Clare and Russ. Through the Evil Days is a great page turner, was on the edge of my seat at times. New relationships emerged in this one and the cliffhanger end made me hungry for more. I hope it doesn't take too long for the next book to come out, I can't wait to see what happens!

Awesome book in a really good mystery series.It is not necessary to read all the previous books in the series to enjoy this one but if you have an opportunity to start at the begining it would be great. This was a page turner and ended with a big cliffhanger. Highly recommended.
