"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves."
   --Confucius
In his twenties, Ethan Holt won the decathlon at the Olympics and was jokingly nicknamed "Hercules"; now, in his late thirties, he's returned to his ivy-covered alma mater to teach, and to raise his young daughter Skip as a single father. After a hushed-up scandal over his Olympics win and the death of his wife in a car accident five years ago, Ethan wants nothing more than to forget his past. Skip is not only the light of Ethan's life--she is his life. Then, Skip is kidnapped.

A series of bizarre ransom demands start coming in that stretch Ethan's athletic prowess to its limits, and he realizes with growing horror that they are modern versions of the Twelve Labors of Hercules, demanded in tricky, rhyming clues by someone who seems to have followed every step of Ethan's career. As images from Ethan's childhood become an onslaught in his mind, he finally comes face to face, literally, with the secrets of his past and understands who the kidnapper is. Drawn to the arena of their final showdown, the Twelfth Labor--a cemetery where the dog Cerberus guards the gates of Hell--"Hercules" must do final battle with his nemesis one last time, to free his daughter, and solve the mystery of the childhood that has haunted him all his life.

Review:

"Kim Powers is a bright, new, intelligent voice in crime fiction. His characters are drawn with great empathy and understanding, and Dig Two Graves is a gripping, can't-put-it-down read that will delight readers from the beginning to its satisfyingly twisty end. A must read!" --Deborah Crombie, author of New York Times Best Selling Author of the Duncan Kincaid / Gemma James Novels

From Publishers Weekly:
"A heart-tugging child-in-peril plot drives this thoughtful crime novel from Powers....Powers nicely depicts the pathos of Ethan's situation...as the story progresses to a twist-filled resolution.
