Publisher's Summary

When the 300-year-old village cemetery at Newbury, Connecticut, is invaded by a gaudy, half-million-dollar mausoleum, Ben Abbott is not happy. Newcomer Brian Grose's tall, mirror-polished monument of eternal ego sticks out in the peaceful burial ground and has been nicknamed "McTomb" by the locals. But no one expected to find Grose's body locked in his mausoleum 50 years ahead of schedule.

The agents from Homeland Security Immigration Criminal Enforcement descend and point the finger at Charlie Cubrero - an illegal immigrant, farmhand, and supposed gang leader - but Ben Abbott doesn't buy it. He knows that half the town was mad at Grose. Besides, Ben has his own reasons for wanting to protect the hard-working Cubrero from a too-close scrutiny.

strangely good

I was at first put off by the petty seeming plot but the writing kept me listening
