“Oh wow! This is such a brilliant start to a new series! This atmospheric murder mystery is a huge departure from anything else I’ve read by RJ Scott and it’s a wonderfully eerie, slow burn suspense.”

“This storyline had everything that I love in a suspense tale; mystery, drama, hidden town secrets, a possible murder or murderers, lies, conspiracy and two men who are caught in the middle— thrown together by chance but seem to be the anchor that each other needs.”

“Bones, an unsolved mystery, corruption, abuse, and small-town secrets make ‘What Lies Beneath’ a fast paced and “on the edge of your seat” mystery/thriller.”
