More than a year ago, mild-mannered Jason Getty killed a man he wished he’d never met. But just as he’s learning to live with the undeniable reality of what he’s done, police unearth two bodies on his property—neither of which is the one Jason buried. Jason races to stay ahead of the consequences of his crime, and while chaos reigns on his lawn, his sanity unravels, snagged on the agendas of a colorful cast of strangers. A jilted woman searches for her lost fiance, a fringe dweller runs from a past that’s quickly gaining on him, and a couple of earnest local detectives piece clues together—all in the shadow of a dead man who had it coming.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Three Graves Full is an astonishing debut novel, smart and stylish and wonderfully light on its feet. Jamie Mason writes crisp, surprising sentences, and this aura of wit infuses her lovely plot with an absolutely Hitchcockian menace. I think she was probably born to be a writer, and I eagerly look forward to whatever she will do next.” Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author
“Ripping good novel…Mason has a witty and wicked imagination, yet she’s also responsive to the pains of inarticulate people.” New York Times Book Review
“Mason strides confidently into Coen brothers territory with her highly entertaining, solidly plotted debut about loneliness and the need for companionship…With sly wit Mason tweaks genre clichés while respecting crime fiction tenets.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Mason’s prose is at times as lovely as poetry, and wry humor deftly offsets her grim tale to devastating effect. This tale has more twists than a corkscrew and you’ll find yourself surprised at nearly every turn…Mason has written a quirky and downright thrilling treat that is not to be missed.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Portraying characters so well and so thoroughly, examining and explaining their motives even for murder, requires a level of skill that is rare, marking this as an astonishingly accomplished debut and Mason as a writer to watch very closely.” Booklist (starred review)
“Mason’s quirky debut novel deftly weaves dark humor into a plot that’s as complicated as a jigsaw puzzle but more fun to put together...Mason’s written a dandy of a first outing with not a single boring moment.” Kirkus Reviews
“Jamie Mason wields a pen that magically blends beautiful prose with unrelenting thrills. Each page delivers something new and fresh; in her hands, even the mundane becomes extraordinary. Grab a chair with a comfortable edge, because Mason will keep you poised there until the final page.” Alex Adams, author of White Horse
Three Graves Full is something special—an offbeat, high-class, pacey mystery that blends black humor with dark lyricism, and deft, intricate plotting with dead-on psychological insight. This is a gem of a debut.” Tana French, author of In the Woods
