When Newbury Connecticut's 300-year-old village cemetery is invaded by a gaudy, half-million dollar mausoleum, Ben Abbott is not happy. Newcomer Brian Groses' tall, wide, mirror-polished eruption of eternal ego sticks out in the peaceful burying ground like a McMansion in an apple orchard. Ben's fellow drinkers at the bar have nicknamed the monstrosity, McTomb. But no one expected to find Brians body locked in his mausoleum, 50 years ahead of schedule. Then, Homeland Security Immigration Criminal Enforcement agents descend on Newbury hunting for Charlie Cubrero, an illegal immigrant farm handand supposed gang leaderwho bought a gun after he was stiffed for 50 bucks by Brian Grose. Ben Abbott doesn't buy it. Half the town was in the graveyard celebrating Newbury's tercentennial when Brian was shot, and most of them were mad at him. Besides, Ben admires the hard working Charlie. And he fears that the news that the illegal worked for the Village Cemetery Association will destroy the venerable society already torn asunder by suing and counter-suing anti-mausoleum traditionalists and pro-mausoleum insurgents.Sujets: Private investigators | Connecticut | Abbott, Ben (Fictitious character) | Cemeteries | Murder--InvestigationOriginal Publisher: US, Poisoned Pen PressLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9781615951918
