Overview

TRAPPED IN A SMALL TOWN...

Calvin has grown up in a town with no phones. No televisions. No windows. A town that no stranger ever visits. And a town where no one under the age of twenty-one has ever seen the open sky.

There's not much work available, but the citizens have found ways to pass the time. Some bury themselves in books. Some become religious fanatics. And some play ever more complicated games of sex and manipulation.

And one of them has murdered Calvin's father.

Calvin needs to find out who and why. And he'd better do it fast. Because right now, he's the only suspect.

They're coming for him. And there's nowhere to run.

Editorial Reviews

Josh Berman
A talented author who crafts an entertaining tale from beginning to end. I didn't see the twists coming which is the mark of a clever mystery writer.
(From the Executive Producer of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION)
Lyda Morehouse
MURDER BENEATH THE BURIED SKY by Keith Hartman reminds me of the rip-roaring, old-fashioned science fiction I devoured as a kid. I fell instantly into it, and didn’t come up for air until the gasp I uttered at the stunning conclusion. Hartman knows how to tell a stirring, engaging story that I would recommend everyone – from my mystery reading friends to hard-core SF geeks. There’s something in BURIED SKY for everyone who likes a well-told tale. (Shamus Award winning author)
Lee Killough
Hartman has written another good story crossing several genres, fast-paced action, and food for thought. A fast paced noir mystery, YA, science fiction, with a sneaky bit of philosophy.
(From the Author of the BLOODWALK SERIES)
Charles de Lint
A fun, fast-paced book with the kind of ending that makes you immediately want to start over again to find the clues you missed the first time around. (From the Head Book Reviewer of THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION)
David Rambo
"A wonderfully imagined, humorous, and fascinatingly detailed thriller that hooked me immediately and wouldn't let me stop reading until I reached the last page." (From the Producer of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION")

Meet the Author

Keith Hartman grew up in Huntsville Alabama, where he was a weird little boy who didn't fit in. He went to Princeton University, where he was supposed to study economics and instead blew all his time on theater courses. He then started a PhD in Finance at Duke, before realizing that he just couldn't spend the rest of his life teaching MBA's how to screw each other. So he ran away to be a writer.

His parents were thrilled.

He sold his first short story to a tiny magazine that went out of business, and his first book to Rutgers University, which did not.

He moved to Los Angeles a few years ago to direct low budget movies. It turns out that everyone in Hollywood is stark raving mad.

And Keith fits right in.
