Three Graves Full by Jamie Mason

Three Graves Full
by Jamie Mason

Eighteen months earlier milquetoast Jason Getty killed a man and buried him in his backyard. For seventeen months Jason worried, stewed, and lost sleep over his actions. His yard went unattended because he couldn’t stand to touch his spade again. Worried that his neighbors are wondering about his yard and begin to notice something weird at the back, he hires a lawn care company to rake, toss grass seed, and plant seedlings in the front.

And they discover a body buried in his front yard that he didn’t know about.

The police arrive, and find a second body in the front yard. The detective informs Jason they are making arrangements for a corpse-sniffing dog to arrive in a few days to check the remainder of his property. Jason is now in full panic mode about the body he buried in the back.

The other two people associated with the newly discovered bodies, Jason, and the two detectives are now circling each other. We learn everyone’s backstory and the events leading up to all three murders. And everything comes to a head in one wild night. A well-written, quick read even at 307 pages with a satisfying ending.
