The sequel to The Life We Bury, which should be read first, Joe Talbert is settled in his new life as guardian for his autistic brother, Jeremy, and girlfriend, Lila, who is cramming for the bar exam. His life is thrown into disarray for three reasons: (1) his employer (Associated Press) is sued for libel as a disgraced state senator gets his wife to recant her story of physical abuse and Joe refuses to reveal his eyewitness source, (2) his editor shows him a story of the possible homicide death of the father, who abandoned Joe, and (3) Lila hands him a 7-month old letter from his estranged mother, begging for forgiveness for her unconscionable behavior. Joe gets himself into trouble in all three matters, especially trying to unravel the murder of his father, who by all accounts was a really bad person. The number of suspects is quite large, as Joe Sr., managed to anger most of the small town in which he lived, and through the suicide death of his wife, inherited valuable property. Joe's brother Charlie has also appeared on the scene to adopt his niece, Joe's stepsister, who is in a coma from attempted suicide by taking pills. Many twists. ( )

Allen Eskens is an author whose work I always like, so far anyway. And this, the second Joe Talbert book, a sequel to The Life We Bury, didn't let me down. Joe finds out early in the book that he is being sued for his journalism, an article for which he won't provide references, and about someone powerful. And he learns of the death of his father, someone he never knew, and someone whose past seems sketchy at best. There is money involved, and people will do about anything to get their hands on money. But most important to Joe is his autistic brother, for whom he has always cared, both physically and emotionally. His drunk, addicted mother couldn't or wouldn't, and Joe will do anything to keep his brother safe.

Although this is a mystery of sorts, I like Eskens's writing because of his characters. They are bad, they are good, and most of them are somewhere in between. He writes with a lot of heart but not a lot of sentimentality. A very enjoyable way to spend a few hours. ( )

I liked The Shadows We Hide every bit as much (or, maybe, a little bit more) than it's predecessor, The Life We Bury (which I read in April). This one takes place several years later. It's full of relationships and surprises (and, I like being surprised by a mystery—it doesn't happen as often as it should). ( )

I read this through the Libby app on my kindle.
When a man hears that his supposed father was murdered, he's convinced he must travel to his town to find out for sure. What he ends up unfolding is a web of secrets and murder. The Joe Talbert series are awesome. The Life we Bury was also very good and The Shadows we Hide did not disappoint. Allen Esken can really write a mystery/suspense book. I love that the ends of the books always have twists and you may be able to call the "who did it part", the story that unfolds is something you'd never expect. ( )

Such great characters. I hope this author continues this story line. ( )
