If you believe a spouse, relative, employer, or friend committed a crime, would you report them? Could you? Even if the crime was murder? Could your silence be leaving someone else to die? Would faith help in your choice?
These questions faced a few of the residents in the town of Amaryllis, Mississippi. Some of the women suspect the men in their lives capable of murder, and a few of them seem to have proof of something foul with good reasons to keep quiet about it all.
Six months usually go by before the next murder.
Leaving the victim’s body in a closet, this serial killer plagues the small town, and the latest victim just may pinpoint the killer’s identity. However, one of the women has a special needs brother, and she is almost sure he was somehow involved. The police zero in on him. Moreover, when the other ladies make the decision to go to the police with their suspicions, their trouble increases double time. In the end, you have few residents giving the police more than they can handle and a small-time reporter trying to get the story straight for a big-time career.
I recommend GONE TO GROUND by Brandilynn Collins. She has developed a new twist into amateur sleuthing while giving easily understood snippets of forensics and delving the reader deeper into the lives of each character and their faith. Her suspense will keep you reading late into the night as you’re wondering if these woman have it right and fearing what if they have it all wrong.
