This book was sent to Traveling With T for review consideration.

The Graves

Summary: Abby Endicott, the chief of the District Attorney’s homicide unit in Boston, returns in the heart-racing follow-up to Mission Hill.

Things are looking good for Abby: she’s top pick to be the next District Attorney, and her musician boyfriend Ty has moved in, despite her upper crust family’s objections. But a serial killer is on the loose, and with two college-aged girls dead and another missing, time is running out. When the sons of a prominent government official are linked to the murders, Abby pushes back, stopping at nothing to find justice for the girls. This time, the killer could be right under her nose, and she may be the next victim.

In The Graves, former prosecutor turned television writer Pamela Wechsler delivers a tense and enthralling Boston-set thriller about the intersection of power, privilege, and justice.

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I love me some Law and Order type books. I was probably a lawyer in another life 🙂

Having loved me some Allison Leotta for some time, I’m always looking for another new lawyer type book to add to my TBR list. When I was approached about this book, I was intrigued enough to say “send it on!”

 

What I liked:

The cover!

Abby. She had something about her and it probably didn’t hurt that when I was reading- my mind was associating Abby of the book with Abby Carmichael- my fav ADA of Law and Order.

The build up of the mystery!

 

What I didn’t love:

This is the second book in the series and while many times that doesn’t bother me to read out of order- this time there seemed to be a lot of throwback to book 1. I got the basics of what happened in book 1, but I’m curious to know if I read book 1 first if my enjoyment of book 2 would have been greater.

 

Bottom line: For me, I’m not sure that I’m ready to add Pamela Wechsler to my lawyer rotation yet, but I’m curious enough to add her first book to my ever growing TBR list.
