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 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’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

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.

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