The Ways of the Dead By Neely Tucker

The Ways of the Dead: A Novel - Neely Tucker


When the teenage daughter of a powerful Washington, D.C., judge is found dead, three local black kids are arrested for her murder—but reporter Sully Carter suspects there’s more to the case. From the city’s grittiest backstreets to the elegant halls of power, wry yet wounded Sully pursues a string of cold cases, all the while fighting against pressure from government officials, police, suspicious locals, and his own bosses at the newspaper.





This was one of the better crime fictions I have read in a while. It was very fast paced, action packed and cringe worthy.

I enjoyed the characters; they were well thought through and well written. I enjoyed Sully a lot, that he don’t give up and kept going.

This book made me stay up late to finish it.

But if you are not a fan of cuss words, be warned because there is a lot of that.


Overall I loved the book and give it 5
