In 1937, a prominent Riverton, Georgia, resident shot and killed his sister and brother-in-law during breakfast. Fifty years later the town is haunted anew by the murders and the man who committed them. He's long dead but his bequest of a park near Riverton dredges up memories best kept buried. Newspaper editor Brooks Sheffield and his crime-busting buddy Dub Campbell team up to solve the mystery around old deaths -- and new slayings along the way.

Entertaining and Suspenseful Book
Candyman’s Sorrow is the engaging writing I have grown to seek out in books by C. J. Box and David Baldacci, whose writing style stealthly draws you into the story and you begin enjoying the book as if you were a first-hand observer.
The main character, Brooks Sheffield, is credible as a small town newspaper editor and publisher. The book presents a realistic view inside the work by the editor and reporter to investigate old murders in the small town. The colorful characters include a former prostitute who has changed her life and is successfully pursing becoming a competent reporter.
The plot unfolds faster with each chapter right up to the finish with an unexpected ending. Overall, a well-written and entertaining suspenseful book.
