Just weeks after tracking down a killer known as the Angel of Death, Detective Mike Coletti stands at Mary Smithson's grave, mourning the woman whose betrayal nearly cost him his life. He's joined there by Mary's beautiful half sister, Lenore. Moments later, a gunshot splits the air, placing Coletti on a collision course with the Gravedigger, a killer hell-bent on deciphering the secret of life and death. As bodies drop and tensions mount, clues are plucked from the victims, and one thing is abundantly clear: Lenore is the killer's ultimate target. But to stop the Gravedigger, Coletti and his partners must go beyond protecting Lenore. They must go to the one place where life and death routinely meet. They must go back to the grave.--From front book jacket flap. Publishers Weekly,Jones's sequel to 2010's The Last Confession gets off to a strong start. When Philadelphia homicide detective Mike Coletti visits the grave of police profiler Mary Smithson, who betrayed him in the previous book, in a doomed attempt at closure, he's surprised to meet Smithson's half-sister, Lenore Wilkinson. He's even more surprised when someone takes a shot at them. After the dust settles, they find Clarissa Bailey, who was showing Wilkinson the cemetery, dead in an open grave. At the grave's edge is a scrap of paper with a quote from Poe's The Raven; in a nearby tree is a "black, crowlike" bird. Coletti later learns that some scholars believe that the poem is coded evidence of its author's supernatural ability to cross between worlds. When Bailey's murderer claims another life, the popular press dubs the killer the Gravedigger. Jones maintains suspense throughout, but an over-the-top ending will please few. (Oct.)
