A runaway teen. A dying wish. A shallow schoolyard grave…
When PI Sydney Brennan is hired to find a man’s missing niece, memories of her own troubled teenaged years make the hunt a personal priority. But she can’t refuse a man’s deathbed request, either: to uncover a boy’s long-forgotten, final resting place at a shuttered juvenile center.
Once Sydney commits to tackling both high stakes assignments, life gets complicated. Locating the missing teen is only the first hurdle on the runaway front, and someone demonstrates an alarming interest in the cold case. With the young victim decades in the ground, who are they protecting? And why?
Can Sydney expose the shady correctional facility’s grim secrets before more skeletons are buried? Maybe even her own…
Grave Truth continues the gritty Sydney Brennan PI Mysteries (see reading order below). If you like dark conspiracies, sarcastic humor, and shocking surprises, then you’ll love Judy K. Walker’s chilling story.

Excellent read. Totally good series.
This book really grabs you and keeps you reading.
There is a lot to like about this book and character.
Sydney is realistic and the story is fascinating.
I did get an ARC but I honestly loved this book.
This is a great series of books. I’m disappointed that I’ve read them all and look forward to the next one being released. The protagonist is a strong woman but made more human by having some of the same struggles that plague a lot of us. The rest of the characters are equally interesting and I am eager to see how they develop throughout the series.
