I picked this book knowing absolutely nothing about it. Truthfully I was pleasantly surprised to find it was about a wounded retired cop. I certainly wasn't expecting much from a free Kindle read, but was constantly and pleasantly surprised.
The multiple plot changes were smooth, believable and surprising! I knew exactly how Mr. Prichard felt at every surprising turn.
When I describe The Grave Man this way, it sounds incredibly intriguing. And honestly the premise is good - the story is appealing. I found some of the plot was a little over the top. Sending a low-level drug dealer to transport something so vitally important didn't seem like a great idea to me, no matter how crucial it was to throw the bad guys off the trail. Indie and her four year old experience an extremely traumatic event and an hour later they're in the backyard, frolicking and kicking balls around? But this is fiction and plausibility is often thrown out for the sake of entertainment. I did enjoy the author's nod to a certain conspiracy theory, however.
There's a lot of action in the book, so that was a plus. It's not a long read, in fact the last 10% or so of this book is really the beginning of the author's next book. The huge problem I had with this book was the atrocious editing. There's no excuse for poor editing, even (especially?) when self-publishing and even if the book is free. I'm not the only reviewer to mention this, so I would hope the author uses this constructive criticism to do a complete re-edit. Considering the incredible amount of typos, I can only give this book 3 stars.
Also, the main character "grins" a lot and the female characters "giggle" a lot. Everyone "shrugs" and "blushes". All these terms are overused. Some descriptions are inexplicable, e.g. "Sam's eyes went wide." I have no idea what that means.
As for plotting...
I found it unbelievable that a single man would be living alone in a two-storysuburban house and that he would offer his excess room to a beautiful single mother with conveniently adorable daughter ... and that the mother is a brilliant computer expert with an MIT education, who is somehow unemployed and homeless. Gee, could the author be setting up a romance???
All in all, this book falls into the "OK" category, but don't expect elegant writing.
