As a recent transplant to the UK, i loved the setting of this book! The book was incredibly spooky, and I enjoyed the different aspects it explored including the cult aspect!

Thank you to NetGalley, Blackstone Publishing, and the author Martyn Waites for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for my honest review. 

The Gravedigger’s Song is my first novel by this author and it did not disappoint. The characters are very well written and the descriptions are phenomenal. 

What I liked best about this novel was how well written the villains were. Overall I would recommend this to readers.

At the beginning of the novel I was definitely pulled into the story. The fact the Tom was working on himself and not with the government really touched on the heart of the realism to the story. It’s the villains of the story who I thought were written very well. They definitely played with the fear factor. I thought the book was good, but a little polishing up as this was an unedited ARC that I was reading.

This is another author who never disappoints, and as his books are only available to me online I find I have missed the ones at the beginning of this series. Enough is mentioned to let the reader follow the backstory but it has made me jump online and order the previous books.
Tom and Lila,  a girl he took in after he caught her stealing from him (and a lot more but I will have to read the previous book to find out what) are living in a small village in England. Tom is in a relationship with Pearl, the lady who owns the local pub, Tom, an ex undercover cop, is also in in witness  protection. When he is asked to look after Simon, a boy who’s entire family had been murdered, he is somewhat reluctant to bring trouble to his door. Lila persuades him as she knows what it is like to need a safe place to be.
When there is a break in at their home, the violence inflicted drives Pearl and Tom apart. Simon left to his own devices ends up in the wrong hands and it is up to Tom once more to help out.
Waites writes unflinching prose and doesn’t shy away from the graphic imagery. His books hold no punches and the better do it.
