Now best known for her New York Times best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels, Charlaine Harris hit a home run the first time out (Birmingham News) with the story of a murder that embroils a small-town reporter in mystery that hits close to home.

Catherine Linton has returned to her hometown of Lowfield, Mississippi, unconvinced that the death of her parents in a car crash six months earlier was an accident. And her suspicions are confirmed when she stumbles upon the dead and beaten body of her doctor-father's longtime nurse. There are secrets being kept in Lowfield. And the town where Catherine grew up may be the same place where she is sent to her grave.

    " This is not what I expected from Charlaine Harris. In one paragraph, you would be reading first person and then a sentence later you would be reading in the third person. I was difficult to follow along with the characters. However, I was not able to figure out who the murderer was. "

    " More like 3.5 stars. I thought for her first novel, it was written pretty well. Although, the reason for the killer to do his crimes seemed a little farfetched but regardless it was interesting book. One funny thing though that shows how dated it is, is when Catherine finds the body in the beginning and I remember thinking well, why didn't she just use her cellphone and call the police instead of driving there. And then it hit me, Duh it's 1981. lol "

    " Little strange so far... I'll let you know when I'm done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine Cantrell | 12/6/2013

    " This was okay, but I thought the murderer's motive was totally unbelievable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 11/18/2013

    " Wow...I was so into this book I couldn't put it down...right up to the ending. The ending was too much of a let down....it just stopped....then nothing. I felt like I had been left out there at the end. This isn't part of any series that I know of so I think thats why I was so let down with the end...Otherwise it was a flipping awesome book. I was kept guessing right up until the very end of the book so I guess I have to say GJ CH! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 11/12/2013

    " another good read, strong female character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morgan | 11/10/2013

    " Charlaine Harris' books are really like crack to me and this one was no exception. Once I start one, I can't put it down. This novel was very different from some of her others, but amazing none-the-less! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 9/4/2013

    " Very good stand alone, her debut. And wicked good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/28/2013

    " Well, this certainly no Sookie Stackhouse book. I was starting to think Harris had lost her touch when I noticed the copyright was from 1981. So I guess it's okay that the book wasn't too impressive "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 7/26/2013

    " I can always tell how genuine a "Southern" story is by how strongly my SC accent returns while I'm reading it. Flew through this little book in a few days, but I was twangin' the whole time. Interesting to see Charlaine Harris' early voice as I'm so much more familiar with the Sookie novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luanne | 4/5/2013

    " Very good mystery book by Charlaine Harris (True Blood series). This book jumped in with a serial killer plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 3/27/2013

    " A predictably enjoyable read from one of my favourite authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roseann Enwright | 6/19/2012

    " Not too sure about this one. I can certainly tell that this is her first book. The growth of her writing is noted and appreciated. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa Bernauer | 5/17/2012

    " Too backwoods racist missippi for my tastes "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 4/13/2012

    " This book was ok. Some of the characters were added too quickly and I didn't have the character development behind them to care about who they were or what happened to them. When the killer was discovered, it was like, so what!? Dumb motive for killing four people. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sawaj75 | 10/8/2011

    " i didn't really like this book. not sure why, but i didn't enjoy it as much as her others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camilla | 10/2/2011

    " You can definitely tell this was her first. It's still good, though, just not as enjoyable as her later books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DeeAnn | 7/22/2011

    " Read this in one day. It was a a good mystery with engaging characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula Umlauf | 7/1/2011

    " This was a quick read, it was ok. Not sure if I would read any more of the author's book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 6/15/2011

    " The story was entertaining, but not that suspenseful. Also, I did not find myself in love with any of the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/31/2011

    " Well, this certainly no Sookie Stackhouse book. I was starting to think Harris had lost her touch when I noticed the copyright was from 1981. So I guess it's okay that the book wasn't too impressive "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brooke | 5/28/2011

    " She definitely got better since 1981. "

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

    " A very good story, non-supernatural but gripping all the same. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lovescaleb | 5/27/2011

    " Too brief. Mystery gets wrapped up too quickly. Anti_climactic but quick read.
    Characters are one dimensional. Typos, grammatical errors. Can tell it's one of Harris' first books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tasha | 5/23/2011

    " This is not what I expected from Charlaine Harris. In one paragraph, you would be reading first person and then a sentence later you would be reading in the third person. I was difficult to follow along with the characters. However, I was not able to figure out who the murderer was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/20/2011

    " I liked the book, but didn't love it. But I did like reading something different from Charlaine Harris from the Sookie "southern vamp" series. Set in south, and the book takes places over the course of a few days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 5/11/2011

    " As with all her other books, I loved the pace and characters. I wish this was a series because I'd love to know where the characters go next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 5/10/2011

    " Meh. I thought the ending was so silly. THAT'S why all those people were killed. Really? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad | 5/7/2011

    " Was a brilliant story and I think from the original publishing date that it was Charlaine's first book she wrote. A definite read for anyone who has enjoyed her other series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynde | 5/1/2011

    " I read this in one afternoon so its reads very quickly.So far I'm not real keen on this book.I'm not exactly sure why but it was okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanne | 4/30/2011

    " Did enjoy but I felt the ending was a bit rushed, it was all over in about 2 pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alesha | 4/17/2011

    " A fun murder mystery. A quick read. Definitely enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/10/2011

    " It was interesting to read a book by Charlaine Harris that wasn't part of a series. It was a good read but I thought the ending was too abrupt. Plus, some of the characters could have been more involved/developed in the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 3/1/2011

    " I really didn't know what hit me with this one. I absolutely did not suspect the murderer. It was not my favorite Charlaine book, but it was engaging. "
