Image of The Visitor (The Graveyard Queen)

The long-awaited fourth installment in the Graveyard Queen series delivers both supernatural mystery and just a little bit of romance. The plot is consistently paced, keeping readers intrigued until the climax at the very end. Amelia remains a clever protagonist, and the eccentricity of the supporting characters fits in perfectly with the poetic and Gothic setting. The Visitor provides clues for what Amelia and Detective Devlin will be facing next and, happily, the wait for the next in the series won’t be long!

Amelia Gray restores abandoned cemeteries to their former beauty, and her talents are growing as the dead begin to communicate more and more. The dreadful history of Kroll Cemetery is a puzzle no one has been able to solve, even with the headstone inscriptions and engravings left as clues. Years after Ezra Kroll’s followers commit mass suicide, the tortured souls remain trapped, waiting for someone to learn the secret and release them at last. Amelia could have the key to discovering the mystery that lies within the secluded graveyard, but it may come at an awful price. (MIRA, Apr., 384 pp., $9.99)
