In the wolds of rural Lincolnshire, a corpse is discovered in a rubbish heap.
It is fifteen years since the man was killed.
Who is he?
And why has the body been found in such an unlikely grave?
Within the space of a few days another brutal murder is committed.
Detective Paul Amos must work out whether they are connected.
As he starts to dig into the case, he quickly discovers that the people of this small Lincolnshire community are not what they seem.
A web of complex family relationships, revenge and dark secrets connect the cases.
But who is the killer?
The answer is more shocking than Amos could have imagined.
From Rodney Hobson, the author of the best-selling 'Dead Money', comes a tale of murder and vengeance. Unlikely Graves brilliantly combines the suspense and character of the traditional masters of the British detective story such as Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie with the grittier story-telling of modern writers such as Peter James, Peter Robinson and Ian Rankin.
