When the three-hundred-year-old village cemetery at Newbury, Connecticut, is invaded by a gaudy, half-million-dollar mausoleum, Ben Abbott is not happy. Newcomer Brian Grose’s tall, mirror-polished monument of eternal ego sticks out in the peaceful burial ground and has been nicknamed “McTomb” by the locals. But no one expected to find Grose’s body locked in his mausoleum fifty years ahead of schedule. The agents from Homeland Security Immigration Criminal Enforcement descend and point the finger at Charlie Cubrero—an illegal immigrant, farmhand, and supposed gang leader—but Ben Abbott doesn’t buy it. He knows that half the town was mad at Grose. Besides, Ben has his own reasons for wanting to protect the hard-working Cubrero from a too-close scrutiny.

“[This] well-crafted…intriguing mystery features a cast of fascinating characters and an honest look at the effects of modern ideas and design on a steadfast New England town.” Publishers Weekly
“It's difficult to believe that a story that centers around events in a cemetery can be so lively, but this mystery by Justin Scott is just that…All [the] well-defined characters are expertly brought to life by the vocal skills of Joe Barrett…This light entertainment is well worth the time to listen.” AudioFile
