    Nothing remains buried forever

    All We Buried is a very well crafted book, and a great mystery. Having been recalled by her sick father from her job in the LAPD to take his place as interim sheriff, Bet Rivers found herself in charge of the little town of Collier when her father finally passed away, carrying the torch that has always belonged to the Rivers family. Six months into her position, a body wrapped in canvas is found floating on the town deep lake, near the abandoned coal mine Collier was built around. That’s how Sheriff Elizabeth Rivers very first homicide investigation begins. The first part of the book is purposely slow paced. Elena Taylor lets us accustom ourselves to the town of Collier, its history, the families that founded it (the Colliers, proprietors of the mine being the prominent one), and the current inhabitants, descendants of those families and of the migrants brought to work the mine. This lengthy introduction is essential. It allows us to easily remember each protagonist and their history for the remainder of the book. As, of course, old families mean many old secrets, and not so old secrets as well. The pace picks up in the second part of the book as the investigation goes forward and clues and leads begin to appear. The reader is kept on edge, the motivations of many characters often appearing unclear, or even dubious. Many questions arise and tension builds. A whole part of the century old history of the town is then slowly revealed as the various plot points converge towards the solving of the initial murder, and of all the other mysteries, small and big, that were introduced along the way. By the end of the book, we’re well acquainted with the main characters and the little atmospheric town. Enough to warrant a return trip. As the book is subtitled « A sheriff Bet Rivers mystery », it seems author Elena Taylor fortunately intends to bring us back to it. Let’s hope it won’t only be for more murders, or Collier, with its thousand citizens, will quickly beat Cabot Cove’s homicide rate. Thanks to Crooked Lane Books and Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for this unbiased review.

    ALL WE BURIED is a well-written novel featuring complex characters, a unique plot, and a fabulous setting. Taylor seamlessly weaves together the past and present in this intriguing mystery that kept me guessing until the end. A great start to what should prove to be an enjoyable new series. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book.
