Overview

It's horrifying to watch someone die.

My partner and I witnessed a fatality during a routine surveillance case--a case that took a bizarre turn when we questioned the victim's wife about the mysterious hole that had caused the accident. The widow admitted that hunters had discovered human remains and rather than alerting the authorities, she and her late husband just...reburied the bones. The out-of-sight –out-of-mind approach is never a smart option, particularly when it's oh...illegal, and especially now that the bones in the hole have vanished.

Who was buried there? And how long ago?

Local, state and tribal authorities want answers. My overworked former boss at the Bear Butte County Sheriff's office hires our PI agency to separate facts from speculation. I bury myself in the investigation because it leaves me little time to obsess about the screwed-up situation in my personal life--why Martinez asked me to go undercover in his strip club as a bartender...and why in the hell I agreed.

I never imagined this new case would cause total chaos in my world, creating new enemies, opening old wounds with my father, reviving disputes with my half-brother's Lakota family, and generating dangerous employee rivalries.

But the information I uncover leads me back to my brother's unsolved murder...and I finally come face to face with his killer.

Editorial Reviews

Stephanie Padilla
"If you're looking for one of those heroines who refrains from any and all vices and who shrieks at the sound of gunfire, you may want to pass on this one. But if you prefer your heroine to be a little on the dark side, especially one who likes to drink, smoke, engage in the occasional sexcapade, and knows how to kick some ass with little fear, this highly engaging and fearless PI fits the bill."
Reed Farrel Coleman
"Step aside, cowboys, there's a new star on the horizon and her name's Lori Armstrong."--Edgar-nominated and Shamus Award winning author Reed Farrel Coleman, on No Mercy
William Kent Krueger
"...a compelling cast of characters and a dynamite mystery sure to keep you guessing until the very end..."--Edgar Award winning author of Ordinary Grace, William Kent Krueger on No Mercy
RT Bookclub Reviews
"Hard-drinking, chain-smoking P.I. Julie Collins has a fascinating, multidimensional personality, as do all the characters in this story. Armstrong's writing continues to be fresh and exciting in the second book of this series."--RT BOOKClub Reviews on Hallowed Ground

Shallow Grave is the 3rd story in the Julie Collins series by Lori Armstrong. I definitely recommend reading this series in order. Even though each story has its own storyline, there is an extended plot that builds across each book. It was great to see some loose ends finally get tied up in this installment. Even though Julie is still mouthy, rude and even a bit obnoxious at times, I have really enjoyed the direction the author has taken with her character showing her softer, sensitive side. Julie's romance with Martinez has heated up as well and just like with Julie, we start to see a softer, more vulnerable side to him as well. Fantastic addition to the series. I can't wait to see what's in store for us next.

I loved this book! There were so many things going on that you couldn't possibly predict the outcome but yet everything that happened all made sense and tied together in the end to make an excellent story. Someone should consider making a movie about this series! Can't wait to read the next book Snowblind!
