A brutally murdered friend who was a family man with not an enemy in the world. A box full of charming letters home, written a century ago by an unknown young woman working at the famed Tiffany studios. Historic Green-Wood cemetery, where a decrepit mausoleum with stunning stained glass windows is now off limits, even to a famed art historian.Suddenly, all of this, from the tragic to the merely eccentric, becomes part of Erica Donato's life. She is a close friend of the murdered man's family and feels compelled to help them. She is arbitrarily assigned to catalogue the valuable letters for an arrogant expert visiting the history museum where she works. She is the person who took that same expert to see the mausoleum windows.Her life is already full enough. She is a youngish single mother of a teen, an oldish history grad student, lowest person on the museum's totem pole. She doesn't need more responsibility, but she gets it anyway as secrets start emerging in the most unexpected places: an admirable life was not what it seemed, confiding letters that conceal their most important story and too many people with hidden history and hidden agendas.In Brooklyn Graves a story of old families, old loves and hidden ties merges with new crimes and the true value of art, against the background of the splendid old cemetery and the life of modern Brooklyn.
