Jason Getty is living an average life in an average home. But, he has a horrible secret that he is keeping. There is a body buried in his backyard and he put it there. Every day, he worries that someone will find the body or his neighbor’s dog will dig up a bone. His worst nightmares come true when some landscapers (who were only hired to work in the front yard, thank you very much) find a body. But, wait, this body is buried in the front yard. When the police come, they find yet another body on the other side of the front yard. It’s a game of cat and mouse from there between the police, Jason, Leah (the widow of the first dead body found) and many more.
Three Graves Full is a kind of dark comedy. Jason has killed someone but you pull for him. He is a little crazy, though. Let’s just be honest. Leah isn’t a bad person but sometimes thinks she is. In the beginning, I didn’t care for her very much but she did grow on me. It wasn’t easy to keep up with the story of Boyd and Bart but that kept it interesting. My favorite character was Ford Watts – a Sheriff’s deputy. He and his dog were a great addition.
There were a few strange transitions and breaks but they are forgiven in this ARC. 4/5 stars.
Thank you to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for sending me an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
