The infamous Dodd murders are hardly among Eastport’s proudest legacies. So when bestselling true-crime author Carolyn Rathbone arrives to research the case for a new book, the locals in the seaside town let her know that she’s about as welcome as a spoiled clam. But surely no one would harm a crime writer out of a sense of civic pride—or would they? 

Jake has her own problems, from the mysteries of old house insulation to an anonymous caller plaguing her with death threats. But with Carolyn’s arrival, the slayings of the wealthy Dodd women suddenly go from cold case to hot topic—much to someone’s dismay, for Carolyn Rathbone’s untimely investigation has unearthed a string of deadly secrets that a cunning killer is grimly determined to rebury, right along with Carolyn herself.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grey853 | 2/7/2014

    " Very disappointing entry for the series. About half the book was in the point of view of other characters instead of the main one. The plot was also extremely thin. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosemary | 2/5/2014

    " I think Sarah Graves has a new focus in her home repair is homicide series. There isn't very much about her struggles fixing up her old home, her family, and her friends but more about some dark and scary and sometimes violent (dark, scary and violent for a cozy, that is) experiences. I probably won't buy anymore of her books but will check them out of the library for awhile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Lou | 1/29/2014

    " Jake is back, this time trying to find Sam before a psychotic killer does him in. Bella has a star turn in this volume. One of her better efforts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/24/2014

    " These books get more suspenseful and gritty as time goes by. The characters at this point are like family and I am always ready to hear more from them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindig | 1/23/2014

    " I usually like these books but this one just didn't grab me. Maybe I'll keep it around for a while and give it another chance. Or not. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane | 1/17/2014

    " The first 10 books of this series are great fun with an artful mix of mystery and historic home repair. I think the last two or three titles have not carried the same punch, different pacing and emphasis. Maybe the concept is played out. I was very disappointed with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/17/2014

    " I liked this book.Sort of, I suppose. However I have to say the last part, with out disclosing any of the details were quite far fetched. I can't imagine anyone short of a super human doing some of the things that were mentioned as the book concluded. I was on pins and needles for the majority of the book. But towards the end, it was too far out there for all the things that went on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 1/10/2014

    " Exciting from start to finish. So far the best of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 12/15/2013

    " Fun, if a little predicable. But that's ok sometimes :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 12/3/2013

    " This was a fast paced easy read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bonnie Murray | 11/30/2013

    " Only read 130 pages and while there were a couple places it caught my interest, the rest was too far fetched in how the crimes were being dealt with. Better books to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bevjirwin | 11/24/2013

    " better this one was more of a thriller than a mystery-not bad "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarahandus | 1/7/2013

    " This book was about 150 pages too long. The story, such as it was, could have been told in 150 pages and made more sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 11/27/2012

    " I have read part of this series of books. I got lost in the chase scenes and time lines. Old murders presumedly put to rest unsolved, are brought out in the open by the visit of a crime drama author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 8/23/2012

    " I had come to think of the Home Repair series as a cosy series, but this one is a thriller, and Graves ups the level of danger to her characters throughout this one. In fact, I do not know how Ellie survived being drowned in the locked room!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 1/21/2012

    " I enjoy this series very much. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judy | 12/27/2011

    " This is part of a series - had never read any of them and won't. There are too many other good mystery series out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 10/10/2011

    " Nice mystery. I will definitely look for more in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 6/28/2011

    " I love the cast of characters Graves as built in this series. Another great mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 5/27/2011

    " This is another good entry in the Home Repair Mystery series. It was non-stop action almost from the beginning, and except for a few places where you had to 'suspend your disbelief' at how the characters reacted to certain things, it was very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janette | 5/18/2011

    " I keep reading her books because they are fun and quirky with some mystery that always works out ok. This one however was more creepy than usual and was not my favorite. "
