This review is from: Riddle (Kindle Edition)
The title first caught my interest, and the rest fell into place. I really liked this book. The relationship between Kort and Grace was realistic and fit perfectly with his past as a convicted killer, and her running from her past. With nowhere else to go after his release from prison, Kort returns to his hometown of Riddle, where he meets Grace, in town only because her car had broken down and is not repairable for a few days. Both are strangers, as even though he grew up there, most residents have now labeled Kort, an adoptive child, an outcast. Not just for the supposed killing of his girlfriend, but for his Native American heritage.
The story between Kort and Grace builds from there. Newton does a terrific job in keeping the questions coming: is Kort really the killer of his girlfriend? Does the answer lie with an old girlfriend, one of the few who believe him innocent of the murder charge? The police chief, an old nemeses who watches every move Kort makes? A clerk at the motel with his own dark secrets? Or, does the answer lie in the dead bodies that keep showing up? This is the good stuff that swirls around the love that builds between Kort and Grace, who soon find themselves embroiled in the life or death mystery of Riddle. A definite read!
