There is very little peace for a man with a body buried in his backyard. But it could always be worse. . . . More than a year ago, mild-mannered Jason Getty killed a man he wished he’d never met. Then he planted the problem a little too close to home. But just as he’s learning to live with the undeniable reality of what he’s done, police unearth two bodies on his property—neither of which is the one Jason buried. Jason races to stay ahead of the consequences of his crime, and while chaos reigns on his lawn, his sanity unravels, snagged on the agendas of a colorful cast of strangers. A jilted woman searches for her lost fiancé, a fringe dweller runs from a past that’s quickly gaining on him, and a couple of earnest local detectives piece clues together with the help of a volunteer police dog—all in the shadow of a dead man who had it coming. As the action unfolds, each character discovers that knowing more than one side of the story doesn't necessarily rule out a deadly margin of error. Jamie Mason’s irrepressible debut is a macabre, darkly humorous tale with the thoughtful beauty of a literary novel, the tense pacing of a thriller, and a clever twist of suspense.

It's not often that you see an adult male protagonist who is not an "alpha male" in a suspense/thriller/mystery book. I liked that Jason represented males who are scoffed at, derided, bullied, and dismissed. It made him seem more human, more fragile, and frankly, made his crime more believable. O...
I so wanted to like this book, but I was so disinterested in every single one of the characters. I didn't care if they lived or died, or what happened to them. The first few chapters were interesting and I tried really hard to keep my enthusiasm up, but I just couldn't do it. Halfway through this...
I really wanted to like this story. But, it just didn't do it for me. I did make it to the end and, to be honest, I'm not sure how I did. For one, it was kind of boring. Not at all what I was expecting. It did start out promising, but as the story progressed, it fell flat. I found myself waitin...
Read my full review:http://bit.ly/15HR7NpMy opinion: I have a confession to make; I don't know who the Coen Brothers are. When a Goodread's friend explained the movies that they had made, I realized I was not a fan of those movies. I think if I had known who they were, I probably wouldn't have requ...
