About-

Every Wickedness describes the efforts of Kristin Ginelli, an untenured professor at a Chicago university, to discover why a young woman died from a fall on a hospital construction site. Professor Ginelli is a former Chicago cop and she suspects that the woman’s death was not an accident. Her refusal to quit looking into the woman’s death makes a lot of people angry, including the murderer. The more academic administrators and police officials try to get her to stop investigating, the more Kristin is determined to expose the interlocking forces of wickedness in our society that can conspire to lure young people into danger and that can sometimes even get them killed. The purveyors of wickedness are very dangerous, and they will threaten those who try to expose them, including Kristin.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Tall, blond, caffeine-dependent, and fearless. Fighting the forces of darkness while surviving faculty meetings. Juggling the demands of small children with those of ad hoc detective work. And—did I mention this?—flattening the occasional bad guy with her black-belt Tae Kwan Do. Thistlethwaite’s Ginelli has it and does it all, a Wonder Woman with powers that we can all strive to have. And she moves through a Chicago landscape vividly conjured by Thistlethwaite’s wonderful, funny, and high-energy prose. Do yourself a favor and read this book.”  

—Paula Fredriksen, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem



“Susan Thistlethwaite covers complex social and ethical terrain in all of her writings. In Every Wickedness she has invited us to navigate this terrain with her once again alongside of my favorite cop-turned-professor, Kristin Ginelli, who untangles mysterious incidents and exposes wicked intents with equal parts curiosity, conviction, audacity, and poise.”

—Aram Mitchell, Executive Director of Renewal in the Wilderness



“In addition to being a great mystery novel, Thistlethwaite offers us a revealing meditation on the tragedy of evil. It makes clear that the solidarity and love of people often regarded as difficult or ‘disposable’ are ways we overcome human wickedness. That insight alone makes it also a valuable work of theology.”

Rita Nakashima Brock, Senior Vice President for Moral Injury Programs, Volunteers of America
