9780061712838: Over Tumbled Graves (P.S.)

Spokane, Washington, a bustling city split by hurtling white-water falls. One afternoon a young woman's body is found buried in a riverside park - then a second body, then a third. Before the week is out Caroline Mabry is plunged into a full-blown hunt for a serial murderer her colleagues have nicknamed the Southbank Strangler. As Caroline and her troubled mentor, Alan Dupree, bridle under an investigation overrun by headline-grabbing "specialists" and bean-counting statisticians. As they close in on a suspect Caroline and Alan confront dark truths about the killer-hunting industry - and about their attraction to each other. And in the end they come face-to-face with an evil very different - and far more alarming - than the one they thought they were chasing.

Review:

"1 'An exceptional crime novel that transcends the mystery of crime and takes a courageous look at an even more profound mystery- the mystery of what it takes to continue living. As Jess Walter probes the nature of evil and its impact, he challenges his readers to reconsider their own complexity. Totally absorbing.' Ursula Hegi, author of Stones from the River and The Vision of Emma Blau 2 'Jess Walter has just about lapped the field with his superior first novel 'Over Tumbled Graves. The suspense and surprises are terrific, but best of all are the characters he has managed to create.' James Patterson, author of Along Came a Spider, Kiss the Girls, and Pop Goes the Weasel 3 'A home run off the first pitch...a tremendous debut, full of pace and tension and unexpected twists, but also full of depth and quiet intelligence that together lift it head and shoulders above the pack.' Lee Child, author of Killing Floor 4 "[An] intelligent, gripping, and genuinely scary novel about a serial killer...compelling...realistic." -- Otto Penzler
