The Graveyard Killings, by Wes Markin

The Graveyard Killings book cover
1980, a young woman is killed in a hit and run. 2023, her body is exhumed and left on her mother’s grave while another body is buried in her final resting place instead. 2024, two more bodies are found in the graveyard…
The Graveyard Killings is the 4th book in the Yorkshire Murders series but the first I have read. There are some references to what I assume are events in the earlier books but there are no spoilers.
There are three distinct timelines in this book. I felt desperately sorry for the unsolved cases in 1980 and 2023 and so was eager for the police team to suceed in the present day. It seems abhorrent for the desecration of graves to happen, but respect for the living is also missing as drugs infiltrate the area.
There is a surprising amount of emotion in the book. Dean’s horror, shock and guilt at the death of his daughter in the past was really vivid. Riddick’s passion to avenge a drug dealer’s cruelty and the other reactions of police officers felt authentic. The professional relationships between the detectives is fraught which adds a great tension and dynamic to their characters.
The Graveyard Killings is a tense detective thriller and police procedural.
