Not the best in the Grave series
I have read and thoroughly enjoyed several of Gilstrap's books recently. This, sadly, was the least favorite. I felt the dialogue was clunky, especially in the middle of the book, and elements of the plot were reaching way past the norms for this type of thriller.
This being said, it still earned three stars for delivering action and I will try another book by this author.
