Another Top Notch Mystery
I've been a fan of M. A. Comley since reading my first Justice book. I devoured Sole Intention, unable to stop reading until the very end. I love the way she entwines great plots, filled with mystery and suspense with real family issues and characters with depth and soul. Ellen Brazil has quickly become a favorite character for me.
Grave Intention starts with a horrific crime. Charles Dugan is a man that you will quickly feel both dislike and compassion for. A man who finds himself lost in a world of gambling addiction he can't control. He loses everything and has only one avenue left--revenge.
When the Dugan house burns with three bodies inside everyone assumes Charles is dead, but before the autopsies can be performed Ellen is approached by Charles' sister-in-law to find him. Ellen takes the case, juggling her need to locate Charles before the men he owes money find him and her mother's horrific accident which leaves her in a coma with her abusive step-father suspiciously missing.
Lots of twists and turns, with an ending I just didn't see coming. Highly recommended.
