My Sister’s Grave is a great rollercoaster whodunnit, police procedural and mystery.

Tracy’s younger sister disappeared twenty years before and her body has just been discovered.

Having spent all this time investigating the disappearance, Tracy is determined to discover what happened to her sister and the circumstances around her death.

Very much enjoyed reading this book. The twist when it came was not expected and the final showdown was nail-biting stuff.

This is in my top three books I’ve read this year and I’m keen to read more by this author.


P.S. One thing in this Kindle version I’ve never seen before was advertising. The story lists various news organizations covering the trial. Wall Street Journal is one of them. But the title was underlined. I tapped and an ad appeared for an WSJ subscription. It was unobtrusive advertising and I thought quite clever. I don’t know if the ad money goes to the author. I have a little fear for what might happen tomorrow in other books.
