    I like it, I would rate the Justin Cronin series (a similar subject) a little higher, but it has moved well, and is a good read. I would say it is a cross between the Walking Dead series and Salem's Lot.

    The library called and they are holding Three Graves Full for me.

    First-novelist Mason hooks the reader with her first sentence, "There is very little peace for a man with a body buried in his backyard." Mild-mannered widower Jason Getty is responsible for burying one body, but he's shocked when two others are discovered in his yard and found to be the work of the home's previous owner, Boyd Montgomery, who came upon his wife, Katielynn, in bed with Reid Reynolds three years earlier, just weeks before Reynolds was to marry his childhood sweetheart, Leah Tamblin. Getty, on tenterhooks, is massively relieved when police wrap up the latter two murders, until persistent detective Tim Bayard finds blood traces in Getty's house that point to a third crime. As Getty prepares a cover-up, Tamblin comes looking for answers and resolution, and what seemed a closed murder case opens up again. Racheting up suspense is one thing, and Mason manages it masterfully, particularly as it concerns Getty's fate. But portraying characters so well and so thoroughly, examining and explaining their motives even for murder, requires a level of skill that is rare, marking this as an astonishingly accomplished debut and Mason as a writer to watch very closely.

    I had been reading the Sherlock Holmes books/short stories. I bought the complete Sherlock Holmes works at Books-A-Million, and I love it! It's a huge book, and it's so nice. This is the first time that I have read any of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and I have enjoyed them so much!

    But now I'm taking a break from Sherlock, as I'm in the mood to read some SK. Found a copy of the Green Mile and reading it now.

    The Ole Lady, the eldest Bratling, and I read Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart aloud last night. It was great fun.

    I love Sherlock Holmes. When I was young I used to memorize long passages from the books. Sadly, all I can remember now is "My dear Watson..." Not very impressive, I'm afraid.

    It has its fun moments. Mr. Trask died while working on it, so it was compiled by his friend and colleague, Max Wheeler. Here and there are editing notations like OOOPS!.
