      Summary: "A murder mystery set in NE Georgia, USA, and featuring a reporter, Branigan Powers, who is commissioned to investigate a cold case, an unsolved murder of a wealthy widow ten years previously. She enlists the help of Malachi Ezekiel Martin, a homeless man who is both a possible suspect and a possible sleuth: the idea being that homeless people get overlooked, and hence see things that are concealed from the rest of the population. This is the first in an intended series of novels featuring Branigan, Malachi, and Branigan's friend Liam, who runs a shelter for the homeless."--Amazon.com

It is the tenth anniversary of the only unsolved murder in Grambling, GA. Reporter Branigan Powers pitches the idea of reopening the cold case of Alberta Resnick to her editor and is promptly appointed investigator. She visits Liam Delaney, the pastor of a homeless mission center, whose clients were around when the Resnick murder took place. Powers hopes that one of them may remember something useful. The closer she comes to identifying the killer, the more danger she is in. Making her fiction debut, Richardson-Moore, an ordained Baptist minister and author (The Weight of Mercy: A Novice Pastor on the City Streets) has written a light mystery that profiles the plight of the homeless without becoming mired in the politics. The character development is well done, particularly with Pastor Delaney, whose actions reflect those of Jesus, loving the unlovable. VERDICT A pleasant read-alike for admirers of Fiona Veitch Smith's "Poppy Denby" series and Carola Dunn's "Daisy Dalrymple" mysteries.
