In Summer of the Dead, the third Julia Keller mystery chronicling the journey of Bell Elkins and her return to her Appalachian hometown, we also meet Lindy Crabtree - a coal miner's daughter with dark secrets of her own, secrets that threaten to explode into even more violence.
Acker's Gap is a place of loveliness and brutality, of isolation and fierce attachments - a place where the dead rub shoulders with the living, and demand their due.

I love the description of the hot summer and the interesting characters but the solution to the mystery I didn't like at all. I won't reread this one, but I will finish the series.

I really liked the first two novels I read by Julia Keller. Her protagonist, Belle Elkin, was tough and smart, which are admirable qualities. I even like the West Virginia hill country she described but this book was not as good as the first two. I felt as though Ms. Keller was trying to stretch the book by adding descriptive paragraphs. Maybe she finished the book and it wasn't long enough so the editor said, "add something, make it longer." How many lines do you really need to describe the cold air coming from the basement? I found it very tiring and also caused me to lose interest in the story. Sorry but I can't recommend this book.
