Suspense Magazine BEST BOOKS OF 2014/DEBUT AUTHOR PRAISE FOR THE LIFE WE BURY "Thriller fans should keep their eyes on Eskens; he's a comer." --BOOKLIST "Compulsively suspenseful." --BOOKPAGE "[A] masterful debut...." --PW STARRED REVIEW "An intelligent and compelling story with characters that will capture you from the start.... This debut novel never lets the reader off the edge of the seat--the mark of a great story."
--THE BIG THRILL "Set against the backdrop of a brutal Minnesota winter, The Life We Bury is much more than a satisfying, suspenseful novel.... This story kept me turning the pages, and it touched my heart. The characters are as real as my next-door neighbors, the story compelling, and the writing superb." --SUSPENSE MAGAZINE "Eskens delivers interesting puzzles, clever problem-solving, and plenty of stay-up-all-night-reading suspense." --REVIEWING THE EVIDENCE "Eskens's first-person narration grabs the reader and never relinquishes its hold."
--LIBRARY JOURNAL EDITOR'S FALL PICK "Eskens' debut is a solid and thoughtful tale of a young man used to taking on burdens beyond his years--none more dangerous than championing a bitter old man convicted of a horrific crime." --KIRKUS REVIEWS "A mesmerizing debut, unfolding decades of secrets in a rewarding tale of redemption."
--JULIE KRAMER, Minnesota Book Award winner
