Title: The Girl In the Grave
Series: Beth Adams Book 1
Helen Phifer
Silence falls as the coffin is lifted out of the ground, yesterday’s rain cascading from it like a waterfall. Glancing into what should have been an empty grave, everyone gasps at the sight of blueish-white fingers exposed in the soil below...

When the body of a teenage runaway is found hidden inside someone else’s grave in a small-town cemetery in The Lake District, an urgent call is made to Forensic Pathologist Beth Adams. Still traumatised by a recent attempt on her own life, one look at the beautiful girl’s broken body is enough to bring Beth out of hiding for the first time since her attack. She’s the only one who can help her trusted friend, Detective Josh Walker, crack the most shocking case of his career.

Beth struggles to believe it’s a coincidence that the gravesite was scheduled to be exhumed, exposing the evidence. Does this twisted killer want to be caught?

Throwing herself into her work Beth discovers traces of material beneath the victim’s fingernails that sets the team on the killer’s trail. But this critical lead comes at a dangerous price, exposing Beth’s whereabouts and dragging her back into her attacker’s line of fire once again.

With Beth’s own life on the line, the investigation is already cracking under the pressure. Then another local girl goes missing… Can Beth stay alive long enough to catch the killer before he claims his next victim?

My thoughts
rating 4.5
I loved it and can't wait to read more of this series, loved the characters Beth , and how no matter what had happen to her in the past , she was going to live her life , yes it mad her scared and not trust people as much but towards the end she over came that, other thing I loved about this book was how it mentioned a book called the Collector by John Fowles , to find out how this book ties in to the story , your just going to have to read it for yourself . with that said I would Love to say thank you to Netgalley for letting me read it and review it.
