The Ways Of The Dead

by Neely Tucker

The Ways Of The Dead throws the reader straight in the deep end, witnessing the tragic murder of a teenage girl whose father is a powerful judge in Washington, D.C.

But was it a random killer or is it something to do with her father’s profession? That’s the question that newspaper reporter Sully Carter is desperately trying to find out, but the deeper he digs, the more complicated things become.

The Ways Of The Dead might not revolutionise the genre, but it’s a page-turning, gripping debut novel from Washington Post writer Neely Tucker.
