Grave Secret (#4)

Previous: An Ice Cold Grave

Lightning-struck sleuth Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver must face their family’s troubled past in this gripping mystery from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Charlaine Harris.

Taking a break from looking for the dead, Harper and Tolliver decide to visit the two little girls they both think of as sisters. But as they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface…

To make matters worse, Tolliver learns his father is out of jail and trying to reestablish contact with other family members. Tolliver wants no part of the man—but he may not have a choice in the matter. Soon, family secrets ensnare them both, as Harper finally discovers what happened to her missing sister, Cameron, so many years before. And what she finds out will change her world forever.


“The evolving relationship between Harper and stepbrother Tolliver continues to be the heart of a series that often is about the darkness of souls. It’s riveting from beginning to end.”

RT Book Reviews

“A gripping mystery.”


“Harper is an intriguing heroine. There are no leather pants or guns in sight […] The only evil in this series is human, and it is, perhaps, easy to relate to Harper and her problems because of this. This book is particularly satisfying.”

Horrorscope (Australia)

“Harris continues to write a series that supercedes itself with each book.”

Crimespree Magazine

“It grabs your heart and doesn’t let go. I’d be surprised if anyone can read it without shedding a few tears.”
