The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens

My Dad gave this to me to read after he had finished.  A good, serviceable, honest thriller.  Very earnest in some ways, but what can you expect from the snowy plains of Minnesota.  I enjoyed it, even as I longed for Dalgleish.  But Eskens did a really nice job capturing the reality of the Midwest, where young and old are trapped by geography… everything takes so long… and limited opportunities…. community college, or not?… and expectations.
