Private investigator Ellen Brazil is hired to find ex-banker Charles Dugan, who disappeared after his mansion burned to the ground. Ellen quickly discovers that Dugan's new profession--playing poker full time--has earned him a circle of very dangerous "friends."
Ellen's investigation is disrupted when her mother is injured, leaving Ellen to wonder why her mother's abusive husband has gone missing when he should be at the hospital. Ellen finds herself trying to solve two cases at once while smoothing over her own personal issues.
When she learns Dugan has plans to flee the country, Ellen knows it's imperative to find him before the gang he owes money to discover his whereabouts and carry out their grave intentions.

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.
