Such a smooth yet exciting read! Tanya R. Taylor has a unique way of drawing the reader into her stories right at the beginning. And she gives us a gripping “who dunnit” with this 8th book in her popular “Cornelius Saga” series. It’s a stand alone read, but if you haven’t read the rest of the series you should!
We are quickly introduced to the dilemma police investigators find themselves in. Who on earth would want to disturb the graves in the grounds attached to a church in this quiet town of Mizpah? Neither the old groundskeeper Jason nor the dubious Rev. McPhee have a clue, but everyone quickly realizes the situation is serious – and scary.
Living nearby, a woman, who has her own secrets, and her daughter start to see things going on that never happened in all the years they’d lived in their house. And the groundskeeper decides to quit. The new groundskeeper Matthew is eager to do well in the job, as he badly needs it, but things start to not go so well for him either.
Then the endearing characters from previous books in the series are reintroduced and give some light hearted anticipation to the situation. The detectives have heard about Dr. Mira Cullen, who has unusual powers of perception. She doesn’t like to be called a clairvoyant, but rather a normal person who has been endowed with special talents! The detectives ask her for help and they quickly see that they have made the right choice. At the same time, Mira’s daughter Rosie, who is now thirteen, has an unexpected visitor, which causes some turmoil in the family.
Mira investigates the case of the disturbed graves. Everything falls into place for the detectives and the dilemma is resolved, but not without a lot of frightening events along the way! Author Tanya R. Taylor never disappoints!
Is six feet deep really deep enough?"Loved this book. It was so cleverly written and the story felt so real. So many twists and turns that it will literally leave you on the edge of your seat."-Amazon customer)
Jason Davis thought he had an ordinary job, but this one nearly cost him his life!
"I'm tellin' you now, this is gonna sound really strange. That's why I didn't see no sense in speakin' a word of it. And you might, after hearin' me out, decide you gonna slap them cuffs right back on me, but at least this weight'll be off my shoulders and if I'm put away, I'll be put away with a clear conscience."
Dr. Mira Cullen is drawn into a mystery which has investigators stumped. Although it is not usual practice for them to seek the expertise of a psychic, the Police Department is not left with much of a choice.
What is ultimately uncovered will shock all of those connected to the case and expose something so sinister, it's bound to rock the community for ages to come.
