What I’m Reading: The Life We Bury

I’m so glad modern libraries lend out e-books, because if I want to read something by a best-selling author, it’s not always available in Kindle Unlimited. Sometimes I go onto the library website and just look for available mysteries or whatever, and try a new-to-me author. That’s how I found this wonderful book and read it (I hardly ever read print books any more….).

The Life We Bury is Allen Eskens‘ first novel, and it was nominated for several awards. It won for the Best Debut Novel of 2014 at the Left Coast Crime Conference, winning the Rosebud Award. It was also named a finalist for the Edgar Award, the Thriller Award, the Anthony Award for Best First Novel, the Barry Award for Best Paperback Original novel, and the Minnesota Book Award for Best Genre Fiction. That means it has to be good, right? It is.
