'From the author of The Case Files of Doyle & McCraken comes a modern day tale of intrigue and murder. When the skeleton of a teenage girl is uncovered at a construction site in Newark, journalist Brian Wilder must follow a twenty-two year old trail of deceit and lies to uncover the truth behind her death. While still struggling with his own tragic past, Brian uncovers a haunting secret of passion and anger that could threaten to destroy one of the most powerful political families in Delaware.'
There's is nothing at all negative I can say about this story, except for the fact that I wish there had been a little bit more of it!
This book contains just the right amount of mystery, intrigue and politics that it totally grips you from the start and is almost impossible to put down.
It's a very fast paced story that packs alot into a small package. The main characters are likeable and easy to relate to and you get a really good feel for them and their background.
The exceptional writing in this book is worth mentioning because it was descriptive in just the right amount without going overboard and bombarding the reader with too many details. You felt like a part of the story and it was very easy to picture every scene as the book moved forward.
I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
