"In Jupiter's Shadow: A Memoir/Mystery"

My copy of In Jupiter's Shadow, by Gregory Gerard, arrived today from Amazon!

Alison Smith, author of Name All the Animals, has this to say about the book: "Generous, bighearted, and filled with homespun wisdom, In Jupiter's Shadow is a mystery story of a different stripe!"

I had the opportunity to read a draft of Greg's new memoir and look forward to revisiting the story of "a religious, teenage detective confront[ing] Heaven and Hell as he struggles to solve the mysteries of sexuality and faith within a family full of secrets."
