For the discriminating mystery fan who loves a complex plot with lots of forward motion and characters who feel like friends. Such a book is Grave Concerns by Gwen Hunter. E.R. Doctor Rhea Lynch finds herself caught in a series of convoluted situations that overlap and complicate her life no end. The man she almost loved, Officer Mark Stafford, has had a one night stand with another woman and she says she is carrying his child. His denial carries little weight. Then the brother of a patient takes a shine to Rhea and she finds the attraction mutual, but something holds her back. To add to her problems, Rhea is unwillingly deputized as assistant coroner when a serial killer's victims turn up. Trying to straighten out the confusion that has become her life, Rhea is drawn deep into the plot to catch the killer and could end up one of his victims. The author of this book has a real feeling for personalities and backgrounds. The reader will believe these people exist and share their loves, joys and fears. A keeper. You will find yourself wanting to read Grave Concerns again to see if you missed anything the first time. I highly recommend this great tale and hope to see other books by the very talented author, Gwen Hunter. A book you won't want to put down.
