Sticks & Stones

Lawyer Rachael Flynn has only been at her new job in the Ramsey County Attorney’s office for four months when she receives an unsigned letter with the startling message: They’re going to find a body at the River Terrace construction site.
He deserved what he got, but it wasn’t supposed to happen. It was an accident. Two days later the predicted body is discovered, but to everyone’s astonishment, the young man’s remains have been buried for at least twenty years. When the body is identified as that of a 15-year-old boy, the police begin to dig for clues as to who might have wished him harm. Rachael continues to receive anonymous notes…and the questions keep coming:

Was it really an accident…or was it murder?
Why has it taken so many years for this story to come to light?
And why did the young man deserve to die?

Susan Meissner has another winner with her second release in the Rachael Flynn Mystery series. Sticks & Stones offers some really unique characters and concepts to make for a gripping read from start to finish. I have read (and enjoyed) all of Susan's books thus far and highly recommend them.
