Summary

John Burley's The Absence of Mercy is a harrowing tale of suspense involving a brutal murder and dark secrets that lie beneath the surface of a placid, tight-knit Midwestern town.
When a brutally murdered teenager is discovered in the woods surrounding a small Ohio town, Dr. Ben Stevenson - the town's medical examiner - must decide if he's willing to put his family's life in danger to uncover the truth. Finding himself pulled deeper into an investigation with devastating consequences, he discovers shocking information that will shatter his quiet community and force him to confront a haunting truth.
With its eerie portrait of suburban life and nerve-fraying plot twists, The Absence of Mercy is domestic drama at its best for fans of Harlan Coben, Laura Lippman, Jennifer McMahon, and Lisa Gardner.

Fantastic story that left me craving more

The story was so wonderful and full of twists and turns. The amount of descriptive words that helped paint a vivid picture in my mind while I read helped really put me into the shoes of everyone involved in the story. The attention to detail and emphasis on the situation at hand really engrossed me in every encounter between characters. The constant movment of events ment there was never a dull moment. I'm left craving more, all that's left is to read again and pay more attention to the finer details for things I may have missed.
