In John Rector’s dark and fascinating psychological thriller, The Grove, farmer Dexter McCray becomes both detective and suspect. He is a man fighting to escape a troubled past, but after waking from an alcoholic blackout to discover his tractor stuck in a ditch and the body of a teenage girl in the cottonwood grove bordering his cornfield, he wonders if it’s a fight he cannot win. In the hopes of proving his innocence, he sets out to find the truth. Isolated from friends and family and devoid of an alibi, he turns to the only person left who can help pick up the pieces of his shattered life: the dead girl herself.

Is Dexter motivated by guilt or insanity, reason or folly? And how will the young victim provide the help he desperately needs? With plot twists on every page, Rector breathes life into a story that pits reality against hallucination, truth against improbability. The Grove is a sinister tale of one man haunted by the reality of his failed life.

    " The writing style is fairly basic (to the book's detriment), but eventually the story and setting grows on you. Good (not great), short read. Ending feels a little rushed. "

    " This book was profoundly unsettling, but it made me very appreciative of my sanity. In all, I would say it was an enjoyable read, if a bit nauseating at times. "

    " The Grove was a creepy trainwreck. It's about a guy who finds the body of a young girl on his property. Instead of reporting it to the authorities, he decides to investigate the girl's death on his own. It goes without saying that investigating on his own did NOT work in his favor. This book is a quick read, but it was dark and agonizing. I stopped feeling sorry for main character after reaching the midway point of this book. I couldn't wait for it to end. "
