From Jennifer Donnelly, the critically acclaimed New York
Times bestselling author of A Northern Light and Revolution,
comes a mystery about dark secrets, dirty truths, and the
lengths to which people will go for love and revenge. For
fans of Elizabeth George and Libba Bray, These Shallow
Graves is the story of how much a young woman is willing to
risk and lose in order to find the truth.
Jo Montfort is beautiful and rich, and soonâ€”like all the
girls in her classâ€”sheâ€™ll graduate from finishing school and
be married off to a wealthy bachelor. Which is the last
thing she wants. Jo dreams of becoming a writerâ€”a newspaper
reporter like the trailblazing Nellie Bly.
Wild aspirations aside, Joâ€™s life seems perfect until
tragedy strikes: her father is found dead. Charles Montfort
shot himself while cleaning his pistol. One of New York
Cityâ€™s wealthiest men, he owned a newspaper and was a
partner in a massive shipping firm, and Jo knows he was far
too smart to clean a loaded gun.
The more Jo hears about her fatherâ€™s death, the more
something feels wrong. Suicide is the only logical
explanation, and of course people have started talking, but
Joâ€™s father would never have resorted to that. And then she
meets Eddieâ€”a young, smart, infuriatingly handsome reporter
at her fatherâ€™s newspaperâ€”and it becomes all too clear how
much she stands to lose if she keeps searching for the
truth. But now it might be too late to stop.
The past never stays buried forever. Life is dirtier than Jo
Montfort could ever have imagined, and this time the truth
is the dirtiest part of all.
