Where to Purchase


"Kathy Herman's latest, Dangerous Mercy, brings up a question many Christians face--how to help without taking unnecessary risks. Most importantly to readers, it's a riveting suspense ride, set in the Louisiana bayou country. A can't-miss!"--Lyn Cote, author of Her Abundant Joy

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.--Matthew 5:7

When eighty-six-year-old Adele Woodmore moves to les Barbes to be near the Broussards, she wants nothing more than a comfortable, quiet life. Employing men from Father Vince's halfway house to do odd jobs and landscaping, she delights in the fledgling friendships she's developed and the idea that she's helping these men get back on their feet.

Then a series of murders in Les Barbes casts a pall over the town and one of Adele's handymen becomes a person of interest to the police. Because Adele has grown fond of these men--and trusts them--she continues to reach out, despite the counsel of friends concerned for her safety. But is there wisdom in her choice--or will she end up being the next murder statistic?
