Wes Swietek's The Cemetery Road Murders is a fascinating, deeply researched, and intensely suspenseful true-crime thriller. It vividly brings to life a forgotten crime and a forgotten time - and the reader won't be able to put it down until the last page is turned and the last shock revealed. Outstanding!

Best-selling author David Bell


Swietek transitions from a top-notch newspaper writer to a page-turner author with this suspense-filled story involving a host of characters that could have been from central casting. Reading it made me feel like  I was there. The book closes the door on a decades-old mystery - Or does it?
