Easy Street, USA. Tricia Gleason figures it originated in Frisco, Colorado. No fuss, no sweat, no worry: the combination for a smooth summer. All set to be a summer intern minister following her first seminary year, she would not be challenged as she was to read Sunday worship scripture, teach church youth to fly-cast and visit hospitals when asked. That changed with one sentence, Tricia, forgot to tell you, but my wife and I are leaving Frisco for the summer; you're in charge". She could only stare. You can't be serious. The minister was. Before she could think or count to ten Tricia is THE SUMMER MINISTER IN FRISCO, COLORADO . . . to preach each Sunday, to coordinate all church activities and handle any "surprise events".

And then, the one arrested states, "Do you think I did this by myself? Well, folks, guess again". Tricia thought it was musing about another. She was wrong. So wrong. And, in it all she never finds Eas

About the Author:

Dr. Mark Henry Miller is a retired United Church of Christ local church pastor and Conference Minister. He and his wife, Diane, live in Snoqualmie Ridge, Washington. Born in Portland, Oregon, he graduated from Stanford University, Yale University Divinity School and Eden Theological Seminary. This is the third novel with Tricia Gleason, who has been a Homicide Detective with the Oregon State Police, fishing guide out of Tillamook, Oregon and seminary student in Berkeley, California. In "Shatter the Darkness" she is a summer minister intern in Frisco, Colorado. Thought her detective hat would remain in the closet. It didn't work out that way. Mark and Diane love Colorado fly-fishing, during which ideas for "Shatter" . . . were birthed. Each of Tricia's adventures includes life, ministry, fishing and murder, but seldom in that order. "Shatter" . . . is no exception. All of Mark's books are available on www.Amazon.com. If you wish to know more, contact Mark at www.drmarkhmiller.com or markhmiller@att.net.
