Research assistant Sarah Mackenzie enjoys collecting information for her uncle’s local history projects. But when she stumbles upon an open grave in Cornplanter Cemetery, she’s startled to find the body reminds her of someone she knew, someone she believed died ten years ago. Like opening Pandora’s Box, the discovery is full of unpleasant surprises and definitely not the kind this researcher likes to collect. To make matters worse, the local sheriff has learned about Sarah’s strained relationship with the victim, and the clues drop one by one to shift suspicion to her as the favored suspect. As the murders escalate and one becomes three, Sarah confronts her fear and searches for the truth, venturing into the world of Seneca Indian culture. Confronted with mysteries from the past as well as the present, she must find their common link in order to discover the identity of the Grave Maker and stop his killing spree.
This story, Buried in Sin, was very close to being the perfect read. I loved that it had both a creative and intricate plot. Pacing was very deliberate. Tiny baby steps to advance it in some parts, and at other times, events occur at breakneck speed, just overwhelming you with so many fast paced scenes that you cannot even catch your breath. Characters were complex and intriguing. They weren’t cookie cutter versions, they showed warts and all. I’m an avid reader of mystery genre and I must admit that I was surprised along the way. This book was a real pleasure to read and well worth your precious free time to read!!
