Chris Bohjalian's "Secrets of Eden" - a review

Eden I've read nothing but raves for Chris Bohjalian's new novel Secrets of Eden, but since I haven't yet read it - but I will! - - I'll refer you to Herald editor Amy Driscoll's excellent review:

"A husband and wife with a history of domestic violence are found dead amid 13 empty beer bottles, with a gun still resting in the man's hand. Obvious conclusion: murder-suicide.

But within the first engrossing pages of Chris Bohjalian's suspenseful new novel, nothing is truly the way it appears on the surface in the small Vermont town of Haverill. The deaths of Alice and George Hayward start to look like two murders. And suspicion falls on the minister who baptized Alice in a local pond hours before her death."
