A PERFECT GRAVE is one of the best thrillers I've read in a long time. It kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole book. There are lots of unexpected and fascinating twists and turns that I never would have expected. The ending is awesome. Rick Mofina definitely a gifted writer and i'm looking forward to his next novel. Lorraine

Seattle Mirror Reporter Jason Wade is back in the third thriller featuring him. He is again in Dutch with his boss and pressured to get more news stories on his crime beat. Sister Anne, a much loved nun is brutally murdered by a knife-wielding assailant and the city is in an uproar. He scoops the other newspapers when he reports the bloody knife found outside Sister Anne's apartment, but his boss still is riding him for more. It turns out that his father and a widow with a young son are eventually involved in the story. Jason's relationship with a female detective on the Seattle Police force is also brittle and falling apart. The author skillfully weaves all these story elements into a great story that keeps you guessing right up to the final chapter.

Everyone who knows Sister Anne thinks she¿s a saint for her compassion and good works concerning the homeless, the mentally ill, prisoners, and families in crisis. The homeless adore her for her non-judgmental attitude and the community as a whole believes she is a truly good and moral person. It comes as a shock when this good person is killed in her home by a man who knows her and wants something he believes she has. --- Seattle Mirror reporter Jason Wade scoops all the other news people when he reports on the weapon, a knife stolen from the soup kitchen where Sister Anne worked. Slowly he gathers information from a variety of sources that a strange man in the soup kitchen talked with Sister Anne who tried to minister to him and he made her sad. What Jason doesn¿t know is that his father is connected to this case by the incident that made him quit SPD or that an innocent child with a brain tumor in need of surgery will be kidnapped by this killer in order to get what he wants from the child¿s mother. The reporter remains clueless and time is running out for an innocent child. --- Thriller writers like Rick Mofina make the genre something special. Jason goes from being a disgraced journalist to the man who keeps getting the inside breaking story. It is hard to accept anyone killing a nun who everyone believes is a saint but as Jason finds out, there is no evidence of her existence prior to her entering the order. The answer to the mystery lies in the nun¿s past and Jason, a strong, kind yet vulnerable tough guy doesn¿t even know where to start looking. --- Harriet Klausner
