(29) Secrets to the Grave by Tami HoagSecrets to the Grave is Tami Hoag's follow up to last years novel, Deeper Than Dead. If you read the first book, then you have already been introduced to all of the key players. Is it necessary to read the first book, no. I am old and had pretty much forgotten everything about Deeper than Dead when I picked up the second book.
Anne Leone is a newlywed. She married the tough guy cop, Vince. She got her masters in Child Psychology and is working closely with 12 year old sociopath, Dennis, when there is another brutal murder in Oak Knoll forcing Dennis to take a back burner with Anne's attention. Four year old Haley is the only witness to her mothers brutal murder and Anne is the only person she feels safe with. As Vince tries to solve the murder, Anne gently tries to coerce an identity from Haley. Can they identify the murder for it happens again?
Secrets to the Grave is a great, mindless read to pass away a Sunday afternoon. Like Deeper Than Dead, Secrets to the Grave is set in the 80's. It is fun to see the pop culture references that I remember fondly as a child wrapped up into a suspenseful murder mystery.
