The Life We Bury – a book review

The Life We BuryThe Life We Bury by Allen Eskens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s a lot to learn about the characters in this book and as they slowly unfold you can’t help but want to know more. Joe just wants to fulfill his college assignment by writing a biography paper on an elderly person. Carl Iverson ends up being his subject. A dying Viet Nam vet, Carl has been in prison for a heinous crime but paroled because he only has weeks to live. Joe thinks this will be easy, interesting, and no big deal; but the more he gets to know Carl the less the story makes sense. If Carl is innocent, then who is guilty becomes the big question. And the answer might just get him killed. A great mystery that twists and draws you in as you realize that things aren’t always what they seem.
