Black and White and Dead All Over Review


When the skeleton of a teenage girl is uncovered at a construction site in Newark, journalist Brian Wilder must follow a twenty-two year old trail of deceit and lies to uncover the truth behind her death.

While still struggling with his own tragic past, Brian uncovers a haunting secret of passion and anger that could threaten to destroy one of the most powerful political families in Delaware..


My Review

I received a free copy of this novel for my honest review.  Brian Wilder thought it was another mundane day at work.  Reporting on the move of the old Chandler house, a rather boring story to his photographer Jessica, Rimdale Commercial bought the property and were also to move the house to a vacant spot.  Somehow Brian was determined to make it interesting and informative to his readers.  As the hydraulic jacks began lifting the house, the foundation began crumbling.  The machines were stopped, as they looked into the debris the saw a skull looking back at them.  Fearing the cops won’t do a thorough investigation, overcoming demons in the process, Brian Wilder investigates the murder on his own.  Although short this was a great suspense novel; I enjoyed the background information as I read along.  I felt really bad for Brian, seeing how he dealt with his past tragedy.  It was sad at times, but a book you just cannot put down.
