MY THOUGHTS:  New Author and series for me.  Now all have to do is find the rest of the series at my library.   This is a different kind of mystery.  Instead of a cop, there is a reporter, Branigan Powers.  She gets a cold case, the only murder in Grambling, Georgia that has gone unsolved.  The paper that Branigan works at is running a 10th anniversary of case.  Once Branigan starts asking questions, people start dying.  Are they connected with the murder?  Is Branigan in danger?  Read the book, it's really good.  I give this book 5......
