|Burial to Follow|
by Scott Nicholson
This is a story about the last rite of passage a human will ever take. The plot follows Roby Snow who is allegedly a distant cousin to the deceased and those left behind to mourn his passing. The setting could be any home in any small town in America during the wake for a lost loved one.
Almost from the beginning the reader can sense that something just isn't right. Almost like there is an under current to tell that there is some unknown situation going on behind the scenes. It is suspenseful, not in the whodunnit kind of way, but in the direction of curiosity's sake needing to learn just what it is that is being hinted at.
This was the first novel of Nicholson's that I have read and was an enjoyable introduction to a new author. I look forward to reading more of his work.
