When Lila finds Ainsley’s old journal at the investigation site, she digs under the story’s surface and uncovers Ainsley’s darkest secrets. Lila becomes obsessed with telling the “real” story of the mysterious murderess on the hill—a woman with a tragic, hidden past.
Lila’s boyfriend and her editor try and stop her from getting too deeply involved, but it may be too late.
Will she be able to resurface once the story breaks? Or will she become another victim of Ainsely’s seductive side?
And can she resist the even more compelling shadow of the Blacksmith growing evermore in the distance?
Dirt is the third installment in Susan Shultz’s artfully creepy Tales From the Graveyard series, following The Blacksmith and Jessie.

Praise for The Blacksmith, Book One of the Tales From the Graveyard series:
“The Blacksmith by Susan Shultz is like Dexter with a feminine twist gone dark. Ainsley feeds her dead heart by killing men and eating theirs. Who run the world? Girls. And their apparently insatiable desire for man-flesh. A fun holiday read!” — Nerdist.com
“It wasn’t until I read The Blacksmith by Susan Shultz that I thought about a different type of ‘scary story.’…It relies on legitimate fears of loss and the flaws in human nature to make you feel uncomfortable. Don’t misunderstand—if you like blood, ghosts and sociopaths, The Blacksmith has that for you.” — Volumes of Words“The new book…explodes with images and themes that test the limits of our understanding of love, death, pain and friendship. Shultz channels masterful storytellers such as Shirley Jackson and Stephen King to weave a surreal yet familiar world, as she delves into the psychology of a killer who is torn between her love of Sam and her passion for the Blacksmith.” — Darien Times
