Healey's Cave by Aaron Paul Lazar came as a complete surprise for me. I am a die hard Gus LeGarde fan, so was very excited to meet Sam Moore. This story adds a supernatural twist to a very compelling mystery. I love getting the back ground information on all the characters and the story line in really compelling. Lazar is a pro at the details, which is my favorite part of his mysteries. Sometimes the answers are in the details. A definite must read!

I am not surprised to find this is a great read. Aaron is one who has yet to disappoint me. He has a way of taking you, the reader into the homes and lives of his characters, and making you want to stay. Bravo!! Another story beyond five stars!!
I really loved this book. The mystery was intriguing, and paranormal elements were woven so artfully into the story that they felt plausible. What I loved most was the central characters gentle affectionate relationships, with his grandchildren and with his wife. This was a great story!
