McMansionBook - 2006
Incensed by the rapid spread of "McMansions" across the peaceful Connecticut countryside, realtor and private detective Ben Abbott refuses to sell the wasteful, ostentatious houses, but trouble arises when the body of greedy developer Billy Tiller is found under his bulldozer, and eco-activist Jeff Kimball is arrested for the crime.

The young and troubled eco-activist Jeff Kimball, who is arrested while sitting at the controls of the bulldozer, protests his innocence. Connecticut's state's attorney sees the opportunity to prosecute an open-and-shut TV murder trial that will vault him into the U.S. Senate. While Ira Levy, the small-town criminal defense lawyer hired by Jeff's hip-hop mogul father, longs to impress movers and shakers in New York City.
Ben Abbott, deep in debt to Attorney Levy for an expensive horse he gave to 12-year-old Alison, is forced to pay off the debt by trying to prove Jeff Kimball innocent of a crime that State Police Major Crime Squad Lieutenant Marian Boyce styles ""perpetrator on bulldozer on victim.""
It looks that way, says Ben Abbott. But in what order did they really stack up?
