Should some secrets remain buried?
Dusty has always been a hothead, far more impulsive than her twin, Nick, the calm, cool and collected one of the pair. But Nick is dead, found murdered in their local cemetery, and Dusty simply can't rest until she finds out who - or what - has killed her brother.
Sure, the local authorities aren't being straight with her - or anyone else - about what's been going on in their little upper Michigan town, Dusty delays going off to college for a semester, defying her father and stepmother and taking a job in the local bar to start doing some digging.
Her focus soon fixes on Shane, her brother's best friend and the town bad boy. The tension and rivalry between Dusty and Shane has always been palpable and sparks fly as the two collide. Dusty finds herself sinking in deeper with Shane and the mystery of what happened to her brother - and a lengthening list of victims - grows even stranger.
When everything comes to a head, Dusty focuses on one thing: What happened the night her brother was killed in the cemetery? She's sure Shane is keeping a secret and she's determined to find out what it is, one way or another
Note: This title was previously published as Graveyard Games - but it has been considerably rewritten and contains a great deal of new material for your listening enjoyment - I think it's a far better story now, but if you happened to read the original, you can be the judge!
Overall, it was an alright read. Some nice twists and turns.
However, the timing throughout the book seemed to be a little off. One minute, it was weeks after the brothers death and then it was longer than a month.
It was quite easy to fall into the grief with the main characters. I liked that part.
I thought there were too many flat characters that took away from the overall focus.
And the ending kind of left a lot of unanswered questions for the reader. Such as the whole daddy issue and the new sheriff and what not.
