In this story the team is hired by the sister-in-law of the missing person—a person who supposedly had died in a fire. The problem is that the missing person, Charles Dugan, a former wealthy top banker, does not want to be found. And a lot of people want him—good guys and bad guys both. It’s just a matter of time before someone finally gets him, but who will it be?
I never quit liked Charles even though he was the person that Ellen and Brian were looking for. It was hard for me to understand why he would let everyone believe him dead, especially family. I could not figure out his motive for this at first. Later it made more sense. I also had a hard time with why he gave up his banking job, which was a sure thing, for a life of gambling that was rather iffy. I guess it all comes down to addiction.
The mystery concerning this story has to do with the burning down of the house—you will just have to read to find out.
I felt disgust when reading about Ellen’s mother and Colin the step-father. Abusive men very seldom change & normally sons of abusive mothers are outraged by the step-father’s behavior and want to beat the crap out of the step-father. So it was a little puzzling how Jim, Ellen’s brother, went from being angry toward Colin to being forgiving and understanding. I just was not buying that Colin had changed his abusive ways. Especially since Ellen’s mother wound up in a coma & Colin was no where around when she went to the hospital. I hope in the next book Colin gets his come-uppings—because he is not going to change. One of the big differences between Britain’s laws vs. American laws concerns domestic violence; it is the law now in the US that if a law officer witnesses any domestic abuse or signs of domestic abuse, he has to arrest the perpetrator—no matter what the victim says—and nothing the victim says will allow the charges to be dropped. It use to be that the victim here could refuse to press charges but not any more because the officer can press charges.
I was frustrated when I read how the police just stood by and let Dugan and the bad guys verbally duked it out and not do anything. And why could they not arrest the bad guys for kidnapping?
Other than the couple of negative comments that I made, I enjoyed the story and hope that things will improve in the romance department in the next book—and of course I hope that Colin will get what is coming to him!
Grave Intention starts with a horrific crime. Charles Dugan is a man that you will quickly feel both dislike and compassion for. A man who finds himself lost in a world of gambling addiction he can't control. He loses everything and has only one avenue left--revenge.
When the Dugan house burns with three bodies inside everyone assumes Charles is dead, but before the autopsies can be performed Ellen is approached by Charles' sister-in-law to find him. Ellen takes the case, juggling her need to locate Charles before the men he owes money find him and her mother's horrific accident which leaves her in a coma with her abusive step-father suspiciously missing.
Lots of twists and turns, with an ending I just didn't see coming. Highly recommended.
