The Life We Bury
College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran-and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder. As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Aided by his skeptical neighbor, Lila, Joe throws himself into uncovering the truth. Thread by thread, he begins to unravel the tapestry of Carl's conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before it's too late to escape the fallout?

The Deep Dark Descending
Homicide Detective Max Rupert never fully accepted his wife's death, even when he believed that a reckless hit and run driver was the cause. But when he learns that in fact she was murdered, he devotes himself to hunting down her killers. Most of his life he had thought of himself as a decent man. But now he's so consumed with thoughts of retribution that he questions whether he will take that last step and enact the vengeance he longs for. On a frozen lake near the U. S.-Canadian border, he wrestles with a decision that could change his life forever, as his hatred threatens to turn him into the kind of person he has spent a career bringing to justice.

Detective Max Rupert's and attorney Boady Sanden's friendship is being pushed to the breaking point. Max is convinced that Jennavieve Pruitt was killed by her husband, Ben. Boady is equally convinced that Ben, his client, is innocent. As the case unfolds, the two are forced to confront their own personal demons.

Vividly told from two opposing perspectives, the truth about the stunning death of Jennavieve Pruitt remains a mystery until the very end.

The Guise of Another
A former Medal of Valor winner, Minnesota detective Alexander Rupert is now under subpoena by a grand jury on suspicion of corruption. So when he's asked to look into the false identity of a car-accident victim named James Putnam, a man who in fact died fifteen years earlier, Rupert sees a potentially big case and an opportunity to regain his respectability. But the investigation puts him in the path of :the Beast," the nom de guerre of Drago Basta, a cunning veteran of the Balkan wars and a sociopath assassin who has been searching for Putnam for years. Putnam had something that Basta still wants. If Rupert's life was in shambles before, it's now also in danger. Threatened by the Beast and suspecting his wife of cheating, Rupert falls for the seductions of the dead man's former girlfriend. As he feels his life spinning out of control, his steadfast brother and fellow police detective Max may be Rupert's last hope.

A Vida que Enterramos

A única coisa que Joe Talbert deseja é terminar o trabalho da faculdade: entrevistar um estranho e escrever uma breve biografia. Com os prazos se aproximando, o garoto decide ir a um asilo para encontrar o tão desejado objeto de trabalho. Lá ele conhece Carl Iverson e logo a vida de Joe vai ter mudado para sempre.

Veterano da Guerra do Vietnã, desenganado com apenas alguns meses de vida, Carl foi internado na casa de repouso em liberdade condicional devido ao estágio avançado de câncer depois de trinta anos preso pelos crimes de estupro e assassinato. À medida que escreve sobre a vida de Carl, principalmente sobre o período que o homem passou na guerra, Joe começa a ter dificuldade de conciliar o heroísmo do soldado com os desprezíveis atos do criminoso.

Acompanhado de Lila, sua vizinha cética, Joe se lança em uma busca pela verdade, mas lidar com a mãe perigosamente disfuncional, a culpa de deixar o irmão autista sozinho em casa e uma lembrança assustadora vão malograr seus esforços.

Fio por fio, Joe começa a desfazer a intricada tapeçaria do crime de Carl, mas, quanto mais se aproxima das reais circunstâncias do crime, mais nós aparecem. Joe vai conseguir descobrir a verdade ou já é muito tarde para escapar?
