The other comments say it all. Wonderful twists and turns in the plot. Well written, great cast of characters and loved the dark humour throughout. Highly recommended.

Nerve racking. Such a mash of characters and stories colliding into a conclusion that leaves you glued to the page. Reccomended!

A different take on a murder story. Could you live with the body of a man you killed buried in your backyard? Then two more bodies turn up in the garden - this is going to be tough to explain! Lots of suspense and twists and turns. I enjoyed this book immensely. Wonder what her next book will be about.

"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."

The reviewers rate this first novel as clever, amusing in places and overall as a good first novel. I can't agree; I found it gross and difficult to continue reading.
