Dangerous Undertaking by Mark de Castrique

Review by Andrea Maloney

Barry Clayton is an ex. cop turned undertaker since his father is no longer able to run the business. At a graveside service for an elderly woman, her grandson strides in like Clint Eastwood complete with duster, rips out a shotgun and murder's his entire family. I read this book with great anticipation since the I found the description of the story intriquing and I wasn't disappointed. The author writes convincingly about the Applachian mountains and it's people, alzheimer's and the effects on a family while involving us in a compelling mystery. Along the way there are some twists and turns and a surprise at the end that I did not anticipate. I fully recommend this mystery for it's great character's and the ability of the author to transport us into the Applachian mountains and community.
