Fantastic crime mystery by a true talent

by greebs on Oct 7, 2009

Jess Walter is quickly turning into one of my favorite authors. I loved both Citizen Vince and The Zero, and decided to go back to one of his earliest novels, Over Tumbled Graves. It's a work of fiction, but apparently based on a real-life series of murder in the Spokane, WA area. A series of dead prostitutes are found, each clutching two $20 bills with other less savory similarities as well. The lead is Caroline Mabry, a detective with some issues, and it is the depth of character that Walter shows of us not just Mabry but several other characters that sets this apart from just another crime novel. The story is well told with a well-structured twist that is quite satisfying. Walter continues to be able to weave strong story, characters and create beautiful prose in the process. He's an author more people should know about, and Over Tumbled Graves is a nice introduction to his strengths.
