Norton; $25.95) it's Christmas Eve in Eden Florida.  Wylie, a forensic consultant, is summoned to a horrific crime scene--all five members of a family have been murdered.  The police are convinced that the deaths are murder-suicides, but Wylie's not so sure.  " . . . Takes noir fiction and slivers it with shards of humor, ironic insight, and . . . hallucinogenic specificity."--Andre Dubus III.  Dufresne is the author of eight other books, including the novel, Louisiana Power & Light and Love Warps the Mind a Little, as well as the fiction guide The Lie That Tells a Truth.  His latest novel is No Regrets, Coyote
