His Right Hand

Mette Ivie Harrison

Linda Wallheim is the mother of five grown boys and the wife of a Mormon bishop in the heart of Utah. Linda's unofficial job as bishop's wife is to support her husband and act as the de facto mother to the ward. But when people of her ward are in danger, she cannot suppress her misgivings about the church's patriarchal structure and secrecy any longer. Once again pulling from the headlines, His Right Hand tackles an extremely contested topic within the Mormon community--transgenderism. Mormon bishop's wife Linda Wallheim fears for the safety of the people in her community when Karl Ashby, the ward's second counselor (the bishop's right-hand man), is found dead in an elaborately staged murder. Linda tries to console Karl's grieving children and wife, but matters are complicated when the autopsy reveals that Karl was a biological woman. Harrison's work continues to present us with a unique insider's glimpse into the lesser-known workings of the Mormon faith and community. Mette is steadily establishing her name in adult crime fiction as she attends conventions around the country. The Bishop's Wifewas a national bestseller, an ABA IndieNext Selection, and a PLA LibraryReads Top Ten Selection. Praise for The Bishop's Wife "Eye-opening . . . A novel so far from my reality I needed a telescope, but I think that's why I enjoyed this debut so much."--Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel "Intelligent and wry . . . Refreshing."--Raleigh News & Observer "A stunning contemporary mystery set in Mormon country...[Harrison] easily transports readers into a world most will find as unfamiliar as a foreign country." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Linda is a fascinating character . . . Her ties to both her family and her church are strong, but she is not beyond questioning her deeply held beliefs when necessary." --Booklist, Starred Review Mette Ivie Harrison is the author of numerous books for young adults.
