"Gone to Ground" by Brandilyn Collins (UPDATED)


Gone to Ground by Brandilyn Collins is the mystery of a serial killer in the small town of Amaryllis, Mississippi.  There were five women killed in three years, all unsolved and all called “closet killings” because they were killed with a knife to the neck in exactly the same way and found in their closet.  Cherrie Mae, Deena and Tully all think they know the killer of the sixth murder victim but all have different  people in mind.  Cherrie thinks it’s the mayor, Tully thinks it’s her husband and Deena thinks it’s her brother.  This makes for an interesting novel when they all share their information with each other to try to fit the pieces together and find the killer.

This is an interesting read with each lady alternately telling the story through their actions and thought processes, similar to The Help.  Although it is a murder mystery, it leaves out the gore and keeps the language clean.  I did not guess who the serial killer was until he was revealed at the end.  I think the title is dumb but don't let that keep you from reading this one--it's good!

Gerard read this too:
Gone to Ground by Brandilyn Collins is told by three women who each make a very good case as to why the man they think is the serial killer in their town.  This is a quick read I enjoyed very much with a great ending!

  1. I haven't heard of this one before, does sound interesting. I do like that style of telling a story, never seen it in a thriller though.
