Gregor Demarkian investigates the murders of several local women who had filed a lawsuit against the town school board for including the theory of Intelligent Design in the school curriculum.

McMillan Palgrave

In every small town there is one person who always sparks controversy, and in Snow Hill, Pennsylvania, that person is Ann-Victoria Hadley. Now this 91-year-old spitfire is igniting a veritable powder keg—when she sues the school board for adding “intelligent design” to its science curriculum. Suddenly the whole town is caught up in a heated debate. But things really explode when, just before the trial, someone attacks Ann-Victoria with a club…

It’s not the first time Ann-Victoria has been attacked for her views. But it’s the only time someone used a blunt object to do it. Now this rebel with a cause is lying in a coma, unable to identify her assailant. The local police chief is on the school board, so he’s a suspect himself and can’t investigate. That’s when former FBI agent Gregor Demarkian steps into the fray—and finds himself matching wits with dueling Darwinists, devout Christians, and one dangerous criminal who’s ready to evolve…to committing murder.

(Book 24 in the Gregor Demarkian series)

This was an OK novel in this genre, but there were many grammatical, typographical and punctuation errors throughout the book which made it difficult to read and comprehend at times. I am wondering why this book was produced so poorly, and I would be really upset if I was the author due to the lack of proofreading and editorial oversight.
