Overview

THE CONFESSION THAT COULD KILL HIM...

Jonah Borden is not your typical Lutheran pastor, and he takes pains to make sure everyone knows it. He's a tough-guy, thinks-he's-funny, rock-music-playing, gourmet-cooking, painfully-moderate-drinking, hard-boiled man of the cloth. He is even available for a bit of romance, under the right circumstances.

Doug Norstad, a member of Jonah Borden's church, is arrested for a vigilante killing. Norstad shares his true alibi with Borden, under the privileged status of religious confession. Knowing now that the man is innocent, Borden must prove it somehow, without divulging his secret. Along the way he uncovers a twisted series of murders and cover ups. Before it is all over, Borden himself has been bribed, beaten, shot, and arrested for murder. Even worse, he may be falling in love.

Set in the midst of the striking beauty of Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastline, Superior Justice will draw you in with its unique and quirky characters, and keep you guessing until the end.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Eric Wilson
Both character and setting are fueled by a good plot, and Hilpert puts his characters through their paces as they try to unravel a solid, even surprising mystery.
In the end, we are left satisfied yet hungry for more Jonah Borden. With snappy dialogue and tight prose, Hilpert kicks off a great new series, and I can only hope to see more Lake Superior mysteries.
Literary Agent - Withheld Withheld
There is a kinetic energy to [the main character] that pops off the page that is as appealing as it is fresh, and he is a wonderfully unique protagonist.
-- a non-interested literary agent.
Amazon - Sally Zeits
Anyone looking for a well written mystery will hit the jackpot with Tom Hilpert's, Superior Justice. This first-in-the-series entry in the Lake Superior Mysteries is witty, well plotted, has believable and well developed characters, and entertains from start to finish. Mystery, action, romance, humor...this book is a direct hit! I'm sorry I am only allowed to give it 5 stars because it deserves more!
