Over Tumbled Graves A Riverbank littered with bodies A city under siege by crime solving experts One young detective struggles to discover the truth and preserve her sanity.Spokane, Washington a bustling city split by hurtling white water falls During a routine drug bust, Detective Caroline Mabry finds herself on a narrow bridge over the falls, face to face with a brutal murderer named Lenny Ryan Within hours, the body of a young prostitute is found nearby, dumped along the riverbank Then another And another Soon Caroline and her cynical mentor Alan Dupree are thrown headlong into the search for a serial murderer police have nicknamed the Southbank Strangler But while Caroline hunts a killer, he may also be hunting her.What follows is a novel that turns the usual serial killer story on its head, that confronts America s burgeoning fascination with psychopathology and murder and stares it down Through one long, bloody summer, Caroline and Dupree remain one step behind a madman who seems to be communicating by killing women and growing bolder with each new body And when Spokane is overrun by headline grabbing FBI profilers, statisticians, and TV producers, the detectives are forced to grapple with the ever hungrier serial murder industry Before it s all over, Caroline and Dupree uncover some hard truths about their city, their profession, and each other And Caroline finds herself back at the river, facing an evil far alarming than the one she thought she was chasing.Rich with the darkly muted colors of the Pacific Northwest skies, peopled with characters of extraordinary depth and dimension, Over Tumbled Graves marks the debut of a novelist with unusual insight into the human psyche.

  2. Another great novel by Jess Walter I think this was his first work of fiction It might be not as polished or perfect as a thriller by an experienced author, but Walter succeeded in writing a crime story that has at the same time a literary depth and an engaging, believable plot Too often you find either one or the other, but not both elements in the same book Characters are 3D sculptures, alive and breat...

  3. Serious and yet oddly whimsical serial killer mystery This is Walter s first novel, and you can tell that there were a lot of elements he wanted to get in there the Green River Killer and the double edged sword of profiling and new policing vs old and T.S Eliot s The Waste Land and even a touch of romance I m not sure how well it all works together the resulting work feels a bit disjointed, not quite complete But it s also so muchinteresting and complex than the average mystery, wi Serious and yet oddly whimsical serial killer mystery This is Walter s first novel, and you can tell that there were a lot of elements he wanted to get in there the Green River Killer and the double edged sword of profiling and new policing vs old and T.S Eliot s The Waste Land...
