Overview

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is no place for button-downed citizens—unless they're trying to hide a murder
Sharp-witted Liv Bergen can't avoid becoming embroiled in murders, it seems. Her family's hometown of Sturgis, South Dakota, is quickly becoming the Sodom of the Black Hills during the dog days of summer as it hosts the infamous rally of grizzled hard-core motorcycle bikers—half a million of them. Crime comes too close for comfort when Liv must solve the mystery of a beautiful young townie to clear her brother's name.
Liv witnesses the vile death of another young woman, and during her investigation of both crimes she attracts the uninvited attentions of the menacing leader of Lucifer's Lot—the baddest of the bad biker gangs. Her quick wit and pragmatic thinking are all that stands between her and certain elimination.
FBI agent Streeter Pierce is back on the trail, working undercover to find the murderer and a shadow criminal called the Crooked Man. When he and Liv cross paths, sparks are flying, literally.
Fans of the amateur sleuth's adventures will find this second book in the Liv Bergen series—the sequel to In the Belly of Jonah—an even deeper mystery, with greater consequences for their heroine.

    Liv Bergan is just healing from her life threatening experience

    Liv Bergan is just healing from her life threatening experience while nosing in the FBI's investigation of a serial murderer.  Her 'day job' is managing a branch of her family's rock quarry.  The only good memory of that experience is her blurry memory of the FBI agent who saved her life.  Unfortunately she was in and out of consciousness during his visits, and has yet to really meet him.




    Now, her hometown of Sturgis, South Dakota is being inundated by loads of motorcycle groups who are coming to the annual motorcycle rally.  Unfortunately, this event also draws a number of non-law abiding men, and their 'groupie' women who will do anything for the gang members.  




    Liv is called home by her brother, one of her eight siblings, because his wonderful girlfriend has just been murdered, and her 14 year old 'partying' sister is missing.  The local police have implied that he might be the murderer.  Though the FBI have also been brought in on another local murder, things aren't going well.




    This second Liv Bergan mystery continues the delicious writing of Sandra Brannan..  Once again, the title and subject of her books, are made more interesting because of the connection to the Biblical story involved.  Definitely not a religious story but knowing the related Biblical story adds greatly to the reader's involvement in the mystery.  If you don't know the related story, you'll still find yourself deeply involved in the story line.  After reading book one, I was thrilled to be able to continue onto book two.  Now I'm hooked and going right to book three---Widow's Might.  




    Looking for a new mystery? This Liv Bergan series is a terrific find!!

    I received ¿Lot¿s return to Sodom¿ & ¿Widow¿s Might¿ as ARC¿

    I received “Lot’s return to Sodom” & “Widow’s Might” as ARC’s (how lucky!) they are 2nd & 3d in the Liv Bergen mysteries. I knew the minute I saw the covers and heard the titles of the books which, by the way I LOVE and the bbb (back book blurb) that I would love this series too, and so I have! I immediately got the first book in this series “In the Belly of Jonah” read it in a day and started on the other two. All 3 are 5 star books for me, this is a new and favorite series.

    In Lot’s return to Sodom we again have our heroine Liv “boots”(for her steel toed boots she wears) Bergen, recovering from the De Milo killer in the first book, In The Belly of Jonah and going home to her large and loving family to recuperate and once again jumping in and not looking back to fight for her brother who has been accused of killing a pretty young townie during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota (yet one more reason to love this book!) which is Liv’s hometown

    Liv and her new “friend” but who saved her life in the first book, agent Streeter pierce, who she has not actually met yet of the FBI and both get caught up in evil murdering men hanging around the motorcycle rally.
    I really wanted a different ending for Liv with the Lucifer’s lot leader Mully who I really liked and I thought maybe….not romance but, maybe he could have helped save her in one or two instances and maybe be brought back in another book, you know the evil biker dude with the heart of gold?
    I love that Liv is a tough girl who can take care of herself and that she comes from a big loving family who have a family mining business as does the author herself.
    Again, I love all 3 of the books I have read so far and am looking forward to the 4th in the series Noah’s Rainy Day

    Thank you for intelligent women

    I get so sick of women either displayed as insipid male controlled lobotomys or as heartless angry maniacs. Liv is sharp. The author likes her own gender and thus depicts her as a sharp and interesting character. There are a couple of inconsistancies. But otherwise. Great book.

    fun and fast paced

    Loved the book! Smart, literate and well paced. Read the previous book in the series too- worth every penny. Inventive killers and great details.

    The idea was good...

    I liked the plot and most of the writing style, but it was hard to follow in places, and sometimes the characters seemed much younger than they were supposed to be, by what they did or the chances they took. The main character was so dumb sometimes I wanted to roll my eyes and shake her! She should have ended up dead! Yet with all of this I really liked the plot line and it could have been a 5 star book so easily. It was a good free book over all.

    Kritters Ramblings

    Another great Liv Bergen mystery. A little less gore, but definitely left me on my seat trying to figure out who the killer was and the hows and the whys. Again I spent the entire book trying to narrow down my options to find the killer at right towards the end I had two in mind, but the clues sent you a different way. Again the killer was in the book the entire time and didn't come out of left field - love it.

    Brannan expertly loops her character Bergen into this next investigation. This book begins just after the completion of the first book and her therapy from her injuries. I absolutely believed the way she ended up in the middle of this investigation and felt as though it was completely smartly done.

    Something that may be minor, but I enjoyed was that this book could be a stand alone. There were a few references to book number 1, but I felt as though anyone could grab this second in the series and enjoy it on its own.

    I think any reader who loves the suspense and wants to piece together the puzzle to finish with a killer that no one would have guessed in the beginning would enjoy this one. I am anxiously awaiting for the next appearance of Liv Bergen.

    Murder, Mystery & Motorcycles! Sandra Brannan is my new favorite author!

    WOW! Sandra Brannan hits the mark again with another gripping and suspenseful mystery/thriller! In "Lot's Return to Sodom", Liv Bergen visits her family in their hometown territory in the Black Hills of South Dakota while recuperating from the injuries she received in the 1st book of this series, "In the Belly of Jonah". During Liv's visit, her brother's girlfriend is murdered during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which draws over 500,000 bikers to the Black Hills each summer.

    Murder, Mystery & Motorcycles - What a great mix of amazing twists and turns that Sandra Brannan weaves into a thrilling ride for the reader! Sit back, put the kick stand up, and hang on tight because you're in for a spine-tingling ride. I am totally hooked on this series and can't wait to see what Liv Bergen does in the 3rd book.

    Excellent

    Better than the first book. Moves quickly. Lots of mystery and suspence. Special Agent Streeter Pierce and Liv Bergen make a good team although separately. Next book please and put them together this time. This book ended too soon. I so wanted it to keep going and going. Excellent two book free download.
