Like most other murders, the 2001 Tombstone, Arizona killing of Debbie St. Germain made headlines for a few days and then faded into oblivion, but for Justin St. Germain, her twenty-year-old son, that brief hubbub was only the beginning. Unable to find closure even after a decade, he searched for a way not to solve the crime, but to understand how his mother's life had reached that juncture; a lonely desert death at the hands of her fifth husband. To make sense of it, he searched not only her history with a succession of spouses, but also our shared national tombstone history of violence. An unblinking, beautifully written memoir; editor's recommendation.
