Everything changes when Joey's mother dies in a tragic accident and he is sent to rural Iowa to live with the father he has never known, a strange, solitary man with unimaginable secrets. At first, Joey's father wants nothing to do with him, but once father and son come to terms with each other, Joey's life takes a turn both macabre and exhilarating.
Daniel Kraus's masterful plotting and unforgettable characters make Rotters a moving, terrifying, and unconventional epic about fathers and sons, complex family ties, taboos, and the ever-present specter of mortality.

Not Rotten At All!
A well written, well narrated tale about a relationship between a father and son, a young man growing up trying to understand himself, and the circumstances that have brought him to where he is now. The story holds its interest in what the father does to earn his living, he robs graves. I did not find the discriptive scenes gross or repulsive, just interesting. A refreshingly different story, I look forward to reading more works by this author. This novel is appropriate for the young adult and up.

Can this be made into a movie?...... PLEASE!!!!!!!
I would love to know if this is an actual thing. Do grave robbers work in a tight secret group? Searching the obituaries for any sign of a "good dig"? Treasures and money with danger and sadness. The characters stories felt believable in a "6 Feet Under" kind of way. I felt bad for the main character's bullying because he didn't deserve it but I also see how it made him pro-active. Towards the end my heart was thumping so loud with the suspense, horror, and excitement of the villain and hero battle. I got to meet the author a few years back when this book was released and I wish I had read now when I met him because I would like to know more about the story.
