Ooooh- this is a thinking person’s mystery as every sentence of Mason’s prose feels so carefully crafted that you want to savor those precise combinations of words.
Story-wise, it’s full of black humor (think Gone Girl). Basically, a guy sorta-accidentally kills his nemesis and buries him in the backyard. He’s so plagued by guilt that he can’t even mow his lawn. He hires a landscaping crew, which uncovers a dead body…but NOT the one our hero has buried…not to be missed!— Jill
“Three Graves Full gives us a fresh, entertaining twist on the murder mystery genre. A coward can snap if pushed too far, which is why Jason Getty has a body buried in his backyard. This is stressing him out so much that he has to hire a landscaping crew to deal with his lawn -- and they are the ones who find a different body in his flowerbed, not the one he buried. The police investigation turns up a third body, and from there on this tightly plotted, suspense-filled tale twists and turns like the country roads of its setting. A great read!”
