My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dig Two Graves ( The Detective Solomon Gray Series By Keith Nixon is a story that grabs your attention from the beginning and doesn’t let go till the end. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough I had to know what happens next. Detective Solomon Gray is a haunted man he lost his son when he was six years old.He feels guilt because he was there and couldn’t stop it. The uncertainty of not knowing if his child is dead or just missing wears on hi,so he doesn’t always make the best choices.The twists and turns had me gripping my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen next. Who is responsible for the Homicides? I highly recommend reading this book especially if you want to know what happens next I look forward to reading more from this Author and this series.

4 out of 5 stars

I’m a sucker for a good thriller so I was really excited to find a new to me author that not only promises to deliver a thrilling story, but introduces me to a new series as well.
The synopsis of Dig Two Graves had my curiosity immediately, the story itself took a bit for me to warm up to. When all is said and done, I feel like Keith Nixon did a fantastic job with crafting an exciting storyline with really strong, complex characters.
Keith Nixon was able to present a plot with several dark issues without overdoing it in a fast paced, entertaining manner. This is an author I really am looking forward to reading more of, I will continue on with this series!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dig Two Graves is the first book in the Gripping Crime Thriller (aka Solomon Gray) series by Keith Nixon. It was my first book I have read of his, but he won me over as a fan. I love crime thrillers and this book fit that without being too gruesome. It kept me engaged start to finish and I didn’t want to put it down. I didn’t expect things go the way they did, and the murderers were a shock. The last pages left me hooked for book 2. Solomon Gray has to have the saddest history of any book character I’ve read, but he still has that drive and desire to solve his son’s disappearance. He isn’t the strongest of characters for a main character, but the story itself was enough to keep me hooked and wanting to keep going. I will continue reading, because I want to know what happened to Sol’s son 10 years ago. Although, I’m left wondering about the title, since there were more than 2 murders in the story.

Dig Two Graves is the opening chapter of Keith Nixon’s Detective Solomon Gray series. It is an opening that will haunt you for days and makes you to reach for the next story in the series. I love series where there is one red line that runs through all the books while each book has its own ‘story’ as well! Add to this the location – once grand town of Margate in the south of England – and you are gone … gone for Detective Solomon Gray and his personal story!
Dig Two Graves introduces us to Detective Gray and gives us his story, the disappearance of his six year old son, his never-ending search and his daily work as a Detective … this story revolves around a world of abuse, corruption, lies … it is the world where you do not know who is telling the truth and who is lying… there seems to be no end to depravity of the man …
It is a dark ride that the writer is taking us, be prepared to suffer and rage with Solomon … you will feel broken and lost and you will give up and you are so wary that you no longer want to continue on the road to redemption … there is no end in sight …
It is the best of the contemporary British crime stories and I can only hope that someone would pick up the series and create something that is in the same league with Broadchurch … (what is there in the south of England that brings out the worst in the man?). I cannot wait to continue walking alongside Detective Gray!

4 Stars

I give Dig Two Graves: A Gripping Crime Thriller (Solomon Gray Book 1) by Keith Nixon, 4 stars.

Detective Sergeant Gray is called to the scene of a death. It appears to be a 16 year old boy who jumped off a balcony. This hits hard for Gray, since his missing son would be that age. Is it him? If not, what happened to the boy? Was it suicide or was there more going on here? And then there is another murder. Someone Gray knows. He knows his life is falling apart, but is it really connected to him or just coincidence? Can Gray solve these mysteries? Can he pull himself out of this murk that he lives in?

This is a great crime thriller revolving around Detective Sergeant Gray. He has experienced extreme tragedies in his life. His character is very complex, not just a one-sided, boring person. This makes it more interesting. The story itself is very gripping and has a lot going on. You will not know the truth until the very end. Along the way, prepare for a rollercoaster of events and emotions.

I quite enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to those who like suspenseful crime dramas.

Dig Two Grave: A Gripping Crime Thriller ( Solomon Gray Book 1) by Keith Nixon. This book is amazing. It’s the story of Detective Solomon Gray whose 16 year old son disappears at fair and has never been found. When he’s called to an apartment block he just feels something is off, the victim is a 16 year old kid (just like his son) and they say it was suicide but for some reason Gray’s phone number is in this kid’s phone. How is that possible, he doesn’t even know the kid. As he digs deeper into this case, bodies pile up and he must face his own ghosts about his son’s disappearance. Will Gray let his own personal tragedy cause him to lose his job or will he solve this crime that may solve his own son’s crime. This book is so good and you get swept up in it quickly! Can’t wait to read another book by Mr. Nixon.

3 stars

I really wanted to love this book, it just missed that mark for me. Between the language I had to try and make sense of but also the overly done descriptions, it just drug it all down for me. It took a bit to get into as it was a different style of writing, but after about 100 pages, I had to keep going to see what happened next.

We do learn a couple very valuable things in this book, but the main question I had wasn’t answered/solved, so I may read the next book to see if my answer is hidden there.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW! I loved this book more than I thought I was going to! Dig Two Graves is a crime thriller written by Keith Nixon. Set in England 10 years after Detective Sergeant Solomon Gray’s 6-year old son Tom disappears at a fair. Gray goes to a crime scene that involves a 16 year old boy who appears to have committed suicide. But for some reason, he has Gray’s phone number in his mobile. Gray can’t help but compare this boy to his son. There are so many coincidences and so many plot twists that it made this book quite entertaining. I couldn’t put the book down! This book is also an emotional rollercoaster! It will have you on edge and the next you will need a box of tissues! This is definitely a book made for crime series readers! I’m so happy to have found this author and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

Dig Two Graves by Keith Nixon
Four Stars

Dig Two Graves is the first book in the Solomon Grey series by Keith Nixon. This thrilling crime drama had me hooked from the very first page. This is the first book I have read from this author, but it definitely won’t be the last. This book was dark and dealt with a lot of different issues, kidnapping, suicide, depression and a bunch of killings. The way the author kept me guessing until the end on what happened to Solomon’s son was excellent. I haven’t read many crime novels in the past couple of years but I really enjoyed this one, and look forward to reading more in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever read a story and the hair sticks up on your neck? I can testify that Dig Two Graces by Keith Nixon has done that to me. This is my first book by Mr. Nixon, and it will not be my last. Mr. Nixon can spin an intricate web that kept me on my toes. The character is fully developed and believable. Mr. Gray is a troubled detective. He lost his son when he was six (and by lost, I mean taken from him). Every time there is a murder with a child close to his son’s age, he gets queasy thinking that it may be his son. There has been a teenage boy that committed suicide and he did not want to take the case just in case it in fact was his son. The story progresses from there and skeletons from Gray’s closet start coming out and there is a whirlwind surrounding the investigation. Will Gray be able to continue with this case? Will the past come back to haunt him? You will have to read to find out more.
