Image of Deadly Night (Flynn Brothers Trilogy)

Graham starts her Flynn Brothers trilogy with this well-plotted, seriously spooky tale. Though hero Aidan is sometimes difficult to like, his behavior is at least consistent -- and justified.

When P.I. Aidan Flynn and his brothers inherit a plantation from their elderly aunt Amelia, they don't know much about her or the property. Meeting Kendall Montgomery, Amelia's caregiver, gives him a window into Amelia's life and information about the house, which some believe is haunted. Aidan's not looking to connect emotionally with anyone, but once he gets past his initial mistrust of Kendall, it seems possible again.

Then the discovery of human bones on Flynn land puts Aidan to work. A string of disappearances going back a decade suggests that there's a killer at work, a cagey villain who's closer at hand than Aidan or Kendall can possibly guess. (MIRA, Oct., 400 pp., $7.99)
