I’m so excited! I found a new author. I was perusing the shelves at my local library and came across a book titled The Buried Book by D.M. Pulley.
I checked quickly to see if the book was part of a series – seems like the trendy thing to do. Which is getting pretty annoying if I’m being honest because I like to read things in order. So if I find a book I want to read I can’t if it’s in the middle of a series. Not a big deal I guess, but still.
So this one wasn’t. This seemed like an old school mystery novel. And it was.
And it was awesome. I fell right into the story. I loved the characters. I loved everything about it.
I was also excited to see that this was Pulley’s second novel. I quickly checked the regular fiction shelves and found her first and her third novel – The Dead Key and The Unclaimed Victim respectively.
All three were mysteries, but vastly different stories and characters. How awesome is that? And on top of that the third one was historical fiction based on a case from the 1930s right in my neck of the woods – Cleveland, Ohio – the Torso Killer.
It was quite a surprise to have not one, but two novels based in an area with which I am familiar. I don’t know of many novels that are set in Ohio. So when I read these I thought it was pretty cool.
It also didn’t hurt that they were very well written.
So, if you’re looking for great mysteries with just enough plot twists to make them even more entertaining without making you nauseous then I suggest you pick these up!
