The Body in the Web goes on sale May 30th! Starred reviews from Library Journal and Book list have been wonderful, but most of all I'm looking forward to hear what you think.

The book is set from January 2021 to May 2022 and I'll be interested to hear your pandemic recollections as you read about the Fairchilds—and mine.



The Body in the Web

Set against the pandemic as a backdrop, the book begins on a sunny winter afternoon in mid January 2021 as Faith is reflecting back over life since March 2020.

But shortly after, Aleford is caught up in a Zoombombing incident at a public meeting that eventually turns deadly. It’s up to Faith to solve the crime while hampered by Covid protocols. Whip up a loaf of her recipe for Beer Bread—developed when no yeast was available on the shelves—and catch up with the Fairchild family and friends, a story of resilience and hope.


"The twenty-five mysteries that Katherine Hall Page has cooked up for her sleuth, Faith Fairchild, make for delectable reading. What a body of work! Dig in." -- Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked

"Katherine Hall Page is my favorite writer of the traditional mystery." - Harlan Coben

Katherine was honored with the 2022 Maine Writers and Publishers Crime Master Award!
