When Jacob and Dinah, private investigators, are approached by Connor to investigate a five-year-old cold case, they are uncertain if it is a job they want to take on. After an explanation and persuasion by Connor, they agree to find out who killed his best friend Billy and why. Along the way, they encounter federal agents, possible suspects, and few answers. It appears that when Connor and Billy tried to get into an off-limit landfill years ago, it set the mystery in action. Jacob and Dinah find out the original case was taken away from the local police by the federal government, who then put it on a back shelf and didn’t try very hard to solve the crime, which makes them wonder what really happened. When they do find and question the main suspect, Trevor Sullivan, there are even more questions than answers. As Jacob and Dinah work the evidence, the answers slowly come to life and they can put all of the puzzle pieces together to find the killer.

Pursuing the Dead is a good murder mystery with a lot going on. Pursing the Dead is a very short read, only thirty-eight pages, but the action never stops in this suspenseful tale. Kevin Hopson has written a crossover to the Jacob Schmidt series that stands alone as a really good story. After reading it, I certainly want to find out more about Jacob and his involvement in other cases. Pursing the Dead can be read in a very short time but I found it to be as exciting and entertaining as any longer murder/mystery book. I recommend you add it to your reading list.
