Mysteries are one of the most read genre's in the book world. There are many author's and many tales to choose from. I've never given five stars, but if any book deserves it, this one does. My sister's grave is everything we crave in a mystery. Tracy Crosswhite, a Seattle detective has been fighting demons for two decades. When her younger sister disappears 20 years ago following a shooting competition, it shatters the lives of a family and a small, tight knit community. Tracy's father James, a we'll respected man in the small town of Cedar Grove Washington devotes his whole being to finding out what happened to Sarah, Tracy's sister. Roy Calloway, the sherriff of Cedar Grove, and a good friend of James Crosswhite believe they know who murdered Sarah. Edmund House, a convicted rapist has allegedly confessed to raping and murdering Sarah. There's just one big problem... they've never found her body. Questionable evidence ends up getting Edmund House convicted of the crime. His confession was never recorded, and to Tracy, a Seattle detective who quit her career as a chemistry teacher in Cedar Grove to become a law enforcement officer following her sister's disappearence, the evidence just doesn't add up. Now, 20 years later, after a dam is removed, hunters find the skeletal remains of Sarah in a shallow grave where a lake once stood. This puts into motion a complete revisiting of the case, with Tracy determined to find out who killed her sister. The story weaved by Mr. Dugoni is an incredible tale of love, deception, and how to reconcile both. I couldn't put this book down after the first chapter. As soon as you think you've figured out what's happened, you realize you haven't. The characters are real, the emotions raw. You'll find yourself convinced of one's wrongdoing only to question it later. This book is so we'll written, so engrossing that you almost don't want it to end. If you read only one murder mystery this year...make it this one. You won't be disappointed.
