A powerful and thrilling literary mystery that plays out like a symphony of several movements

A wealthy woman is dead in Hartford, Connecticut, and the cause of death is anyone’s guess. Was it suicide? Murder? Natural causes? The cause will determine the payout of her estate, and there are as many possibilities as there are suspects. Motives abound---greed, envy, anger, lust, pride---but who really had the means to pull it off? Could it have been the woman’s estranged niece? Her driver? Or was it the young Matthew Wyman?
Equally devoted to a racing plot and stunning craft, Burial of the Dead features the unfolding of the mind and world of the likable but troubled Matthew as he struggles for sanity and redemption in a world where falsehood and betrayal assault the innocence and curious workings of a challenged and gifted psyche.
