Drawn And Buried is an entertaining local flavor of a mystery novel. The protagonist has found a successful career and an outlet to express himself through his drawing and as a family member tried to take it away from him as a child, the antagonist also attempts to shut him down. Ryder has plenty of confidence and cool and genuine concern for the good in others to not be rattled or manipulated by the mysterious happenings that surround him. An easy read and page-turner until the very end. Looking forward to seeing more from the author and this character.
