"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.

Book Excerpts

Chapter One 
Providence, Rhode Island
5:50 a.m., September 1
 
That ain’t piss down my pants, thought the old convict. That’s blood.    
 
He reached a hand around, fingered the wet tear in his shirttail, stuck a pinkie in the hot, sopping sinkhole in his lower back, gasped at the pain.
 
He ran on, cradling the package, wrapped in a garbage bag and a newspaper, like a football in his left arm.
 
I ain’t been shot for twenty years.
 
Garrett had been shot two times before, and shot at two dozen times.
