Suspense Fiction. "There is very little peace for a man with a body buried in his backyard." So begins Three Graves Full
, a clever, often poetic debut told from many points of view (including a dog's). Months ago, widowed suburbanite Jason Getty had -- uncharacteristically -- killed someone and buried the body at the back of his property. Now, beset by weeds and finding yard work a bit traumatic, he hires a lawn service to tidy the front and side yards, where they find two bodies -- neither of them buried by Jason. The police get involved, and Jason's life gets far more complicated. This nerve-wracking first novel has critics raving; Booklist
calls it "astonishingly accomplished."
