Her Husband’s Grave by P.L. Kane is an Adult Mystery Thriller on shelves now!
“Criminal psychologist Robyn Adams is at breaking point after a previous case resulted in an attempt on her own life. But as she sits in the car about to head home, her phone rings. It’s Robyn’s cousin, Vicky Carter, who she hasn’t seen or heard from in years.
Vicky’s voice cracks down the phone. Her husband, Simon, has been found buried on Golden Sands beach. Desperate to help and determined not to let her last case get the better of her, Robyn returns to the coastal village where she spent summers with Vicky as a child.
Robyn knows that she has let Vicky down in the past and is set on making up for lost time. Throwing herself into the case, she combs through evidence, intent on discovering a lead that will help the local police.
But there is clearly someone who wants Robyn gone. She is convinced someone is watching her and when she begins to receive threatening notes, Robyn knows that she could be risking her life…
But Robyn won’t leave again – she owes it to Vicky to stay.”
This was another disappointment of sorts.
With all the mystery, thrillers, and horror novels that have been/will be releasing, I have been in such a mood for these stories.
When I saw that this was a psychological thriller, I was all for it. But, when I met the characters and found the plot to be a little flat, my mind quickly wasn’t having it.
I ended up giving this one a 2 out of 5 stars. While there were moments that I found the writing to be engaging, between the meh ending and lack of oomph that I love from thrillers, I just couldn’t see myself recommending this one to fellow readers.
