I love how Aaron Paul Lazar has drawn the characters in his book. He sketches the relationship of man and wife in soft strokes, like a lovely pen and ink drawing on fine paper. A grandparent taking delight in the love of his grandchildren is a pastel portrait framed in gold. Childhood friendships drenched in sepia tones are like old photographs in a long forgotten album taken from the shelf. I also like the pace of the book. Nothing is rushed. There is no leap headlong into a maze of frantic action nor is there a plunge into needless back-story. There is a gracious and soft unfolding of detail, layer upon layer, as if one were looking at a painting of a lush landscape. Characters reveal themselves and the story unfolds easily, effortlessly. Sam Moore is a methodical man, used to figuring out mysteries in life by using tried and true principles. He has honed his solid intellect during many years as a physician and isn't prone to imagining things. But when Sam discovers a marble in the soft friable earth of his garden, he begins to think he may be going crazy. The glowing cat's eye marble seems to flash scenes of his boyhood before his eyes, scenes with his younger brother Billy, who had been so dear, the brother whose disappearance had left behind an unsolved mystery and a hole in Sam Moore's heart. Was his brother speaking to him from across the void? As we look over Sam Moore's shoulder into the fire of the green marble, we are drawn with him into an experience of the paranormal, seeing into the unseen worlds he unearths, never to rest until we know the whole truth about what happened to his brother Billy- and to the others. The sense of intrigue never dims in this book. I love a good story and this is one of the best I have read in a very long time.

My thanks to the author's wife who proposed that the author write a book from the killer's point of view...

And a new series was born! Healey's Cave by Aaron Paul Lazar, who is known for his LeGarde Mystery series, declared he was just minding his own business when his wife spoke...In fact, he laughed!

Now his wife loves psychological thrillers which I do too, so I knew she was on to something...especially since, at that time, I hadn't read any of Lazar's books! I had met Aaron at a Facebook Reviewer's Roundup Author Interview and immediately knew I would like the man...you know, one of those guys that is fun and easy to talk to...so that's how he wound up as my December Spotlighted Author at Book Reader's Heaven and I was invited to have a Lazar marathon...hmmm, maybe I even volunteered, not sure now!

Anyway, Healey's Cave is his latest book, as well as being the first Sam Moore Mystery. I loved it!

Lazar has a style of writing that pulls readers into the lives, as well as the setting of his books; he's a natural storyteller. He spends time sharing about nature and talks knowledgeably about the plants, flowers, and, in this case, the caves that you can tell he has explored.

In fact, the "green marble series," was conceptually created when he found a green marble, a cat's eye, unearthed while he was rototilling! As with many of us, the marble took him back to childhood and he started to wonder about the little boy or girl who lost it...

And that is how the main character was whisked back in time...

Sam Moore was himself a grandfather when he found the marble. His first thought was whether it might have belonged to his brother who had disappeared 50 years ago.

Sam Moore is a gardener extraordinaire. But when he finds a marble in his knotweed patch, life changes. The strange green marble carries Sam on wild excursions into his past, where a long-time mystery just waits on being answered. But will Sam live long enough to unravel the case of his missing brother?

Aaron Lazar has crafted a truly wonderful tale of suspense, nostalgia, and supernatural occurences. I loved the time in the garden, written by a man who obviously knows his stuff and felt like the trips back into his past were well-done and moved the story forward to its tense conclusion.

This was my first Sam Moore mystery but it won't be my last!

The story starts off slowly but rich in detail as Sam Moore, a recently retired doctor, deals with making plans for his long summer days of freedom. He is obsessed with clearing his acres of land to make a garden for numerous crops and flowers, and also being a devoted husband to his wife with MS, a good father, and a fun grandfather to his extended family. The story has a mystery concerning the death of his brother Billy when they were just pre-teen boys, but it builds up slowly and then comes to an exciting end with closure about the brother's death. There's no abrupt cliffhanger in this book despite being first in a series, so it can be treated as a stand-alone also.

Sam's discovery of a glass green marble that was dropped so long ago by Billy gives him the temporary ability to travel back to the time of his childhood. It's fun to read about the more innocent lives of young boys in the late 50's/early 60's, and follow Sam and Billy's adventures with their friends: the nerd, the girl, the wealthy one, the annoying kid. I was a child then, though younger than Sam Moore is purported to be, and some of the details brought back memories of a slice of Americana--backyard bbqs with fellow townspeople, 4th of July parades, grandparents who were involved in their grandkids' lives, sleepovers in a tent on the lawn--the list goes on. This is not a story for fans of intense thrillers, graphic murders, or detective car chases. It can be called either a quiet, low-key story with a mystery and a touch of time-travel, or a country mystery, or a serious cozy. Whatever you want to call it, it is the right book if you are in the mood for a clean, family-oriented story with a touch of the unknown. Recommended for fans of family reads and cozies, leaning more toward gentle character studies than dead bodies and blood.
