Dig Two Graves (Detective Solomon Gray #1) by Keith Nixon is a raw and dark read but that
is what all the best crime fictions stories are about, right? Add in a cop who has not only
witnessed the worst humanity has to offer but he has had to live through several of the most
tragic and horrific times of his life. Cynical – absolutely. Damaged – you bet ya. Barely
functioning – oh yeah. Keith has woven a magical yet complex thriller where the main
character is complex and broken and everything around him goes from bad to worse and the
intricate plot is a mystery until the very end. The emotions in this book weigh heavily and will
have you all over the place.
The story jumps back and forth from the past to the present as we journey along with the
memories of what was and today as Sol tries to go on with his life. The story is one I couldn’t
put down and had me on the edge of my seat.
Sol is a man who is struggling with a past that will forever haunt him and a job that is a
constant reminder. A life that is empty and cold. I life where there is nothing makes sense.
Dig Two Graves is a must read and will keep you guessing to the very end which will
surprise the heck out of you.
