December 2011 Book of the Month.
Following on from the excellent Deeper than the Dead, Secrets to the Grave is another tautly plotted thriller, set in the 1980s before everything is solved with forensics, that will keep you guessing to the end. Tami Hoag’s characters just jump off the page and she takes full advantage of setting the stories in a small community to have a whole range of colourful characters that wrap in and around the main story. You don’t have to read Deeper than the Dead 1st but it will help your overall enjoyment of this cracking ‘micro-series’ – the next in the series is Down the Darkest Road.
A woman lies on her kitchen floor, lacerated and naked. A four-year-old girl rests her head on the woman's bloody shoulder. A whisper hangs in the air: My daddy hurt my mummy...With a clue like that, finding the perpetrator should be easy. But nobody knows who Haley's daddy is and she won't say a word about it. Anne Leone, a child advocate, realises that unravelling the child's secrets will be difficult. But no one knows just how difficult. As FBI profiler Vince Leone begins to build up a picture of the killer he has one huge problem. Despite being well-known in her small town, Haley's mother seems never to have officially existed...
