Alton Gansky is an American author with a background in architecture, advertising, and accounting. He has written thirty books, of which twenty-four are novels and six non-fiction pieces. Gansky was a Christie Award finalist for his novel A Ship Possessed. He has won an Angel Award for his novel Terminal Justice.

Alton Gansky focuses as much on faith in his real life as he does in his novels (along with a healthy dose of murder and mystery, of course). Gansky has served three Baptist churches in California as a senior pastor and holds a B.A. and an M.A. in biblical studies. Gansky has spent over two decades in pulpit ministry and today lives with his wife and three children in Southern California in the High Desert area. He currently serves as a pastor in Phelan, California.

Alton Gansky is the author of several fictional series, including the Ridgeline Mystery series, his earliest published series. The first novel in this series is called Marked for Mercy and was published in 1998. The sequel, A Small Dose of Murder, followed in 1999. From there he wrote the Barringston Relief Chronicles, J.D. Stanton Mystery, Perry Sachs Mystery, and the Madison Glenn series.

He published a novella called Plot Line in 2012. His eleven non fiction novels range on a variety of topics within and about religion and include Uncovering the Bible’s Greatest Mysteries in 2001 to Sixty People Who Shaped the Church in 2014. He has not only written stand alone work but contributed to other books within the Harbinger series with a variety other authors.

His first novel in the Ridgeline Mystery series is called Marked for Mercy. The series is published by Chariot Victor Publishing.

Marked for Mercy deals with the main character of Dr. Gates McClure. A Christian and a doctor in Ridgeline, California, she finds her calm life and her medical practice suddenly turned upside down when an old acquaintance enters. Dr. Norman Meade has come to assist with a dying woman who wishes to commit legal suicide. But when a man is found murdered and the resulting evidence is making Dr. Meade look guilty, it doesn’t look good. With so much media focus and all eyes on Meade, what is the public and Dr. McClure to think?

Dr. Gates McClure is fascinated by the case– after all, it’s a compelling situation and it involves someone she knows. Who wouldn’t be interested? She also does not fully believe that Dr. Meade is responsible for the cold-blooded murder of another man, particularly when he came to California to help a woman die peacefully. It all just seems a little coincidental and neat for her liking.

As Gates McClure looks for answers in this murder mystery, she must also confront several things along the way. Is the mild-mannered and likable man from medical school capable of being a killer? What does she believe about assisted suicide and what people’s rights are? As McClure navigates the waters and searches for answers, she is forced to ask herself questions of her Christian faith as she works to prove that Meade is not behind the murder.

The second book in The Ridgeline Mystery series is A Small Dose of Murder. The sequel sees the return of the main character, Dr. Gates McClure. When two patients under her care die quickly one after the other, McClure is concerned. Is it a coincidence? But when she sees the autopsy reports, she only becomes more confused and has more questions. Neither of the patients should have died in the manner that they did. And when the media and the widow of a patient publicly blame Gates for their deaths, she’s outraged and angry.

Gates can’t understand why her patients passed away, particularly after she was keeping up on both of them and had given them a clean bill of health. Something just doesn’t seem right here. She runs the cases and what she did through her head over and over. Did she miss anything in her diagnosis? What killed these patients? What wasn’t she seeing– or it was it foul play and made to look like medical malpractice?

As Doctor McClure tries to put the pieces together, she unwittingly becomes a target for someone else. But even that random attack yields more questions for her than answers. Was she the intended victim for the attack? And why would someone be out to get her or else actively try to kill two people? What do they get out of it? As the days go on, McClure is in the midst of a giant mystery. Not only is she determined to find out the truth and bring someone to justice, but she needs to get a potential murderer off the street as well as clear her name.

Doctor McClure’s faith and strength are tested once more as she struggles to understand what is going on and how she can clear her name. It’s possible that if this doesn’t all work out that she will never work in the medical field again. She could even be charged or sued for the deaths of two patients– deaths she had nothing to do with. Now she must work harder than ever to see what she missed, to tune in on the little details, and find or discover that one thing that’s going to allow her to unravel it all and find out the truth.

McClure needs her faith and God more than ever to help her solve this mystery and bring what she believes to be a killer to justice. They already killed two innocent people and are working to make it look like a framed murder, so what else are they capable of? And how did they get access to these two people that were relatively sequestered from most contact?

Someone certainly knows what they are doing here, and they are not playing games. If McClure doesn’t figure out what’s going on soon, she is certain that more people are going to die by this sick killer’s hand. That is not something she is about to let happen at all if she can possibly help it. Will McClure succeed, or is she in over her head?

    Enjoyed the book Dark Moon. I usually get my books from the Moody Library. Dark Moon was given to them and they put it in a free area! I took it.
