Critically acclaimed author Susan Meissner's Rachael Flynn mystery series started with the popular Widows and Orphans.
In the second serving of intrigue, Sticks and Stones, lawyer Rachael Flynn receives an unsigned, heart-stopping letter: They're going to find a body at the Prairie Bluff construction site. He deserved what he got, but it wasn't supposed to happen. It was an accident.
When the body is uncovered, Rachael and Detective Will Pendleton discover that the 15-year-old victim, Randall Buckett, had been buried 25 years before. Is the letter writer and the killer the same person? Why would someone speak up now? And why are they telling Rachael?
Susan Meissner's ability to weave a fascinating tale will leave listeners wanting more.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Stick & Stones is a worthwhile murder mystery. The protagonist is a lawyer/prosecutor, but the story is about gumshoe investigative work on an old cold case and it never goes near a courtroom. The novel gets very close to boredom as it drags along. Narration is superb.
