SHALLOW GRAVES

Location scouting is to the film business what Switzerland is to war. John Pellam had been in the trenches of filmmaking, with a promising Hollywood career — until a tragedy sidetracked him. Now he's a location scout, who travels the country in search of shooting sites for films. When he rides down Main Street, locals usually clamor for their chance at fifteen minutes of fame. But in a small town in upstate New York, Pellam experiences a very different reception — his illusionary world is shattered by a savage murder, and Pellam is suddenly center stage in an unfolding drama of violence, lust, and conspiracy, which have a stranglehold on this less-than-picture-perfect locale.

"Shallow Graves" is the first in a three-book series--by Jeffrey Deaver writing as William Jeffries--that has been out of print since 1995. A Hollywood film director looking to shoot his next film in Cleary, New York, gets a lukewarm reaction from the town's inhabitants. When a friend is murdered, he learns how far the town will go to keep its secrets hidden.
