“SUNDAY BEST” BY ANN LINEBERGER
When publishing mogul Walter Bloom is grotesquely murdered, his brother and business partner, Charles, is determined to discover who is responsible. Walter had a quiet curiosity with sex clubs, and Charles is convinced Walter’s murder is related. He enlists the help of his employees—sisters Lauren Mark and Brooke Edwards, Jackie Hunt, and Darren Nottingham—to infiltrate the swingers groups Walter favored. They discover a comically warped and perverse subculture … that is somehow connected to the alternative church called Unify that Lauren and Brooke’s clairvoyant mother founded in their youth. As the team digs deeper, they discover the lengths that people will go to preserve their secrets.
Laced with humor and biting social commentary, Sunday Best is an inventive and absorbing comic mystery that offers a satirical glance into the world of sex clubs, alternative religions, and clairvoyants as a study of the selling of hope in contemporary America.
