Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373264852, Mass Market Paperback)Grave Truth.
When the remains of a young woman who disappeared forty years ago are found beneath the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, the man who went to prison for her murder asks Professor Simon Shaw to help prove his innocence. Happy to escape the city's summer heat and brewing romantic troubles, Shaw heads up the mountains to the scene of the crime -- his own hometown of Boone.
Putting small-town gossip, obliging relatives and old memories to good use, Shaw is surprised by the lack of evidence against Roy Freedman. But what would drive a man to confess to a murder he didn't commit? Did Roy kill Eva Potter or was he a convenient scapegoat? A second murder disguised as an accident points Simon in the right direction, leading him to a stunning discovery hidden deep in the hills, to a secret worth lying -- and killing for.
