Book Description

Nov. 1 2007 PI Julie Collins series (Book 3)
Surveillance on an insurance fraud case in Bear Butte County unfolds tragically for PI Julie Collins when the reappearance of a mysterious hole—the cause of a fatal accident—brings about the landowner’s unsettling confession. Bones were recently uncovered on the remote ridge but, fearing repercussions from their illegal off-season hunting, the hunters reburied the remains and kept quiet. Now the hole is back, but the bones have vanished. Julie is left to wonder Were the bones part of an ancient Indian burial ground or perhaps connected to the unsolved disappearance of a Native American woman? The overworked, understaffed sheriff asks for Julie’s help, but the case opens old wounds and she soon finds herself at odds with the Native American community. On the wrong side of tribal politics, family disputes, and employee rivalries, Julie continues to dig for answers, while the personal stakes climb ever higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different heroine April 25 2008
By R. Nuttall - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I first started reading Blood Ties, the first book in this series, I confess I was shocked and somewhat offended. Heroines, even supposed "kick-butt" heroines, don't smoke like chimneys and drink like fish. I don't smoke and rarely drink and at first I didn't like her at all. But Julie Collins doesn't care if I like her. She's wrestling her own demons and she'd tell me right out front that she didn't give a flying **** about mine. And she got me. By this, the third book, I was totally hooked.

In a series that's both dark and real, Shallow Grave allows us ever deeper into Julie's world, where her best friend has a glass eye and her boyfriend is the definition of mad, bad, and dangerous to know. She's juggling a lot of stress, not least of which is her continuing grief and anger over her brother's death.

I can't praise this series enough. Tight plotting, true scary moments that made my heart pound, and unforgettable characters. Run, do not walk, to your nearest store and get this series of books. They are well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series Dec 26 2007
By Lynda Hilburn - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've posted reviews of the first two books in this series, and I can only hope (since some of the loose threads were tied up in this book) the series will continue. I inhaled all three books in as many days, and added Armstrong to my list of "auto buy authors." The books reminded me slightly of the Stephanie Plum books and of the Eve Dallas "Death" series. Both of those excellent series also have endearing ensemble casts, and in Eve's case, a larger psychological issue. Armstrong has taken her heroine's vulnerabilities to new depths in this third book. Not only is PI Julie still struggling to solve the "big mystery," but she continually learns more about herself as she pieces together the smaller puzzles emerging in this exciting plot. The romantic elements (and a romantic triangle) add to the page-turning quality of the story. So, what do you get when you combine a politically incorrect, wild-and-crazy private investigator, Harley-riding badboys, the alternative reality of the Native American experience in South Dakota and a dysfunctional childhood? An incredibly good book.

This being the third in the series I enjoyed, the other characters in the book were more promenient throughout the book and made for a better read.
