Cemetery Lake
Cemetery Lake: A Thriller | Paul Cleave
6 posts | 5 read | 19 to read
A chilling case of unsolved murders and mistaken identities unravels when a lake in a Christchurch cemetery releases its grip on the murky past in this exciting crime thriller from the internationally bestselling author of The Laughterhouse. Cemetery Lake begins in a cold and rainy graveyard, where Private Detective Theodore Tate is overseeing an exhumation—a routine job for the weathered former cop. But when doubts are raised about the identity of the body found in the coffin, the case takes a sinister turn. Tate knows he should walk away and let his former colleagues on the police force deal with it, but his strong sense of justice intervenes. Complicating matters are a few loose ends from Tate’s past. Even good guys have secrets, and Tate thought his were dead and buried for good. With time running out and a violent killer lurking, will he manage to stay one step ahead of the police, or will his truth be unearthed? Originally published in Paul Cleave’s native New Zealand in 2008, Cemetery Lake is the first novel to feature Theodore Tate, the “quintessential flawed hero” (Kirkus Reviews) from Collecting Cooper and The Laughterhouse. Full of the clever plot twists and sardonic humor for which Cleave has become known, it is at once a totally entertaining crime novel and an unforgettable drama about the universal battle against the darkness within.

This was my first book I bought here in New Zealand. It was set in Christchurch, where I am at the moment. It is a crime novel, first in the series with PI Tate. I will look out some of his other books. #books #bookcover #crimebooks

If you are looking for a dark and dirty roller coaster ride of a book, I highly recommend Cleave. Theodore Tate—this mystery‘s protagonist—is no hero; his is a broken and flawed man full of secrets and guilt. He grasps at redemption through justice but uses unorthodox methods and makes lots of bad decisions. Cleave leads the reader through plot twist after plot twist in a breathtaking and fast-paced thriller. - Nici
