Description
Just west of the Ohio River lies the peaceful town of Wintersville. Safe from the crime and congestion of city life, it is the perfect place to raise a family - or so they thought. Life as the town medical examiner is relatively unhurried for Dr. Ben Stevenson. With only a smattering of cases here and there - car accident victims, death by natural causes - he has plenty of time to spend with his loving wife and two sons. That is until a teenager's body is discovered in the woods and Ben, as the only coroner in the area, is assigned to the case...

Description
John Burley's The Absence of Mercy is a harrowing tale of suspense involving a brutal murder and dark secrets that lie beneath the surface of a placid, tight-knit Midwestern town. When a brutally murdered teenager is discovered in the woods surrounding a small Ohio town, Dr. Ben Stevenson--the town's medical examiner--must decide if he's willing to put his family's life in danger to uncover the truth. Finding himself pulled deeper into an investigation with devastating consequences, he discovers shocking information that will shatter his quiet community, and force him to confront a haunting truth. With its eerie portrait of suburban life and nerve-fraying plot twists, The Absence of Mercy is domestic drama at its best.--Publisher's description.
