Davis Morgan, a book store owner and former preacher, lives in Adairsville, Georgia. Though he has never been a police officer himself, he enjoys riding in his good friend Charley’s patrol car with him. One night during a terrible storm, Charley is asked to create a road block around a downed power line, and Davis goes with him. After securing the road, they stumble upon a body at the bottom of a large ditch.
This body leads Charley and Davis on an interesting journey that leads back to a cave on the property that Davis’ daughter Amy, and her fiancé, intend to purchase. Now Amy and Jay may be in danger, unless Davis and Charley can solve the mystery before someone ends up seriously hurt.
I found this book to be well written, though there were some missing punctuations, especially in the dialogue, that were rather noticeable. I found a rather substantial amount of missing quotation marks.
Davis Morgan’s character is very interesting, though I felt like there were pieces missing. Though the fact that this is the second book in the series, a fact I was unaware of when I began reading, would probably explain this. Charley seemed much more realistic.
As for the mystery, I found it very interesting that this mystery did not begin with a murder. Besides Sherlock Holmes, I have read very few mystery stories that did not begin with a murder. Perhaps that is my own failing, as there are probably many of them out there. The mystery was interesting for me in this way, but I felt that it lacked depth at points. By the end, I was completely surprised by who was behind the whole mystery.
I must admit I did enjoy this novel though I felt that it could have had more mystery to it.
I would recommend this novel to fans of mystery and self-discovery.
