"Even better than his Shamus-finalist debut, Spiked."
---Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Speak Ill of the Living

Highly praised by both reviewers and mystery writers, Mark Arsenault introduces a stunning new suspense series with his courtroom drama, Gravewriter.

Billy Povich used to be a journalist. He lost his wife because of his gambling habit, and then she died in a car crash. Now he finds himself writing obituaries and living with his elderly father and seven-year-old son, Bo.

Billy plans to kill the man who was at the wheel the night of his wife's death. But then a summons to jury duty for a murder trial delays Billy's agenda. As the trial heats up, Billy finds that his little boy spots danger faster than he does, and a frantic and deadly chase begins with Billy as the prey.
