When the Bishop Needs An Alibi
Chapman, Vannetta

But his visit to the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge reveals more than just a miracle of God's creation. Hidden among the bulrushes and cattails is the body of Sophia Johnson--one of Monte Vista's newest residents and a waitress at the local diner. As the local authorities attempt to unravel the mystery, Henry finds himself drawn to the young woman's family and once again feels God's calling to use his extraordinary talent to aid in the investigation. His ability to draw from memory in photographic detail could help solve the case. It might also put Henry and those he loves in the direct path of a killer willing to do anything it takes to cover up a brutal crime. What happens when Henry embraces his gift and trusts in God's protection, knowing that danger could be lurking close by?"--Provided by publisher.
