Read Perdition (A Nell McGraw Investigation, #2) Online Free - Nell McGraw struggles with being a newly widowed mother and running the paper founded by her husband’s grandfather. But a paper can’t ignore the stories others turn away from, like the badly decomposing body of a child found in the gulf. At first it seems tragic, a child lost because of carelessness. But then another child goes missing.
Disgusted by the turf war between the sherriff and the police chief, Nell barely manages to keep her journalistic distance . . . until the killer contacts her, telling Nell her children could be next. Now she must match wits with a psychopath who taunts her, daring Nell and the police to catch him before he can kill again.

A warning that the beginning of this book is extremely raw and graphic. It then settles down but those first few pages almost put me off. Nell McGraw is a young widow, running her husband’s family’s newspaper. The setting is a small Mississippi gulf town, and several of the characters run to sout...

*I received this book from the publisher and NetGalley in return for a fair review.*
This is both the second book in this series, the Nell McGraw series, and the second book with this author’s name on it. Which is important to note, the name part, because this is also the 13th book I’ve read by t...

3.5 stars. The opening is pretty tough to take in so I think, in part, that it made me struggle to get into the rest of the story. The first part is pretty slow also, so that didn't help. Characterization is good, Nell is interesting. A completely competent mystery, just be prepared for the prolo...

This was the second installment in the Nell McGraw series, and while I haven't read the first book, I never had the feeling I was missing something.
The prologue was unexpectedly shocking and may offend more squeamish readers, but it was very effective to draw my undivided attention - I raced thro...

The prologue for this book was SO dark (and I'm okay with dark) that I almost didn't read the book. I'm really glad I did, though, because this was a good mystery featuring an engaging main character. The author does a great job of balancing the mystery plot with Nell's everyday life. Her reality...

Recently widowed Nell McGraw has decided to stay in the small Gulf town with her two children and continue to run the weekly paper, the Pelican Bay Crier, founded by her husband's grandfather. Not that it's all that easy when long-time She...

The beginning (after the prologue) was a little rough because it was slow. I was confused at first with all the characters being introduced but started to really get into the story when I was about 30% in. The plot started to get really good about 60% when you are on the verge of trying to find o...

This is a tough one to rate. The beginning was brutal...difficult to read. Then it was slow. Very slow. At about 40%, it picked up somewhat and kept me reading. Unfortunately, I guessed “who dunnit” so the ending was very anticlimactic.

First of all, I would like to thank NetGalley once again for another spectacular book!
The book starts describing a series of abuses, violence and even a murder, leaving a child without his family several years ago.
Many years later, a black girl's body is found in the woods of a city, and although...

When I first read the prologue I almost vomited because it was like a car accident you couldn't look away from no matter how horrifying it made you feel. I actually had to reread the same paragraph a few times to make sure it was saying what I thought it said. When I got done I wasn't sure if I c...
