Another Benay Client in the New York Times!

Benay Client, Soho Crime, had one of its authors, Mette Ivie Harrison and her new book “The Bishop’s Wife” featured in the New York Times! In Ms. Harrison’s first adult novel, she introduces Linda Wallheim, a woman living in a Mormon community that’s “very much a man’s world,” who uncovers many of the secrets being hidden in the small community. By ingeniously mixing mystery and details of the everyday life for the Mormon religion, it’s no surprise that “The Bishop’s Wife” has entranced a large audience. The book is also dubbed “a Linda Wallheim novel,” which “suggests that her [Linda Wallheim] instincts will continue…” to captivate audiences in the future. #news
