The Family Plot by Cherie Priest

Music City Salvage doesn't immediately intrigue you.  What does it even mean?   A family business is on the ropes and a old money estate may provide it with a second chance. 

Chuck Dutton's salvage business is struggling so when he is offered a deal that is too good to be true he ignores his gut feelings of wrong and signs up to salvage the Withrow estate.  

Over the years I have had the opportunity to dismantle a business or two.  As grunt teenage labor, salvaging a garage, it was a thrill to find dollar bills used as bookmarks in parts catalogs.  Even more thrilling was the boss, my buddies Dad, let us keep the cash we found.   So I can appreciate how the author imbues excitement and curiosity in her characters.  Some of her characters are not actually there or are they?

The author builds tension in the story and is annoyingly reticent with her clues.   This, of course, feeds the fires of interest and makes this book a page turner.

The relationships of the characters ring true, particularly for anyone who has worked in a family business.

This was a good book and I recommend it.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
