Thumbs up Free (nook/Kindle/Kobo) Corruption of Faith [Reporter vs Local Church Murder Mystery]

Corruption of Faith by Brenda English (SYKM, Fantastic Fiction) is the 1st novel in her Sutton McPhee series of murder mystery/crime thrillers starring a news reporter for a paper in Washington, D.C., this one seeing her pursue a twisty path down the road of investigating the local ties between religion and crime, as her own sister, a church secretary, is murdered in a bank parking lot for no immediately apparent reason, free for a limited time courtesy of author/agent backlist republishing consortium Jabberwocky Literary Agency.

This was originally published in 1997 by Berkley's Prime Crime imprint.

Currently free @ B&N, Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK) & Kobo & Google Play (both available to Canadians, and DRM-free at Kobo). Price-drop-check linkage for & iTunes, where this may also eventually go free.

Incidentally, if you are interested, Jabberwocky are holding a sale on several of their other backlist titles across various genres which include mystery and horror, as well a sfnal works. More details in orangekiwi's post in the SF/Fantasy megathread.

Description
Washington News reporter Sutton McPhee is in a funk. She has worked her way up to the big time – covering education for a major metro daily in the nation’s capital, but even that job has lost its luster. She is jerked out of her professional doldrums, however, by the devastating news that her younger sister, Cara, has been murdered. Cara worked as a church secretary and was loved by her friends and the congregation. Her death by gunshot in a bank parking lot has left the police – and Sutton – mystified.

When the police can’t give her answers, Sutton’s grief drives her to try to solve Cara’s murder herself. The more she learns, the greater her determination to follow every lead until she finds her sister’s killer. But that decision will take Sutton into a world where religious faith and power are masks for blackmail, greed, perversion and worse – and where Sutton soon finds her own life is on the line in her search for justice.

I found the cover so insipidly boring that I'm going to use the original cover, instead. (See below.)

And the original cover is also insipidly boring.

Both covers scream "I wish I knew how to use Photoshop!".
