The Life We Bury

Written by Allen Eskens | Narrated by Zach Villa
Rural Minnesota is the chilly setting for this Earphones Award–winning audiobook! With a whopping 21,000 five-star ratings on Goodreads, this “masterful” mystery (Publishers Weekly) centers on Joe Talbert, who finds himself led to a nursing home after taking on an assignment to interview a stranger. He’s soon drawn into the story of a dying Vietnam vet — who was convicted of murder decades ago…


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?
