This twisting crime novel "does what great books should-makes you resent time spent away from it" (The Newark Star Ledger). An Esquire Best Book of the Year and a Miami Herald Best Crime Fiction Book of the Year Will, Jeffrey, and Nolan have been friends since their undergrad days at Princeton. Now, nine years after graduation, Will is a failed musician still reeling from the death of a bandmate. Jeffrey got lucky and then rich from the dot-com boom, and Nolan is a state senator with national aspirations. Through it all, their bond with each other has managed to survive-until one shocking event changes everything. One night on the road, they make a routine stop at a convenience store. Moments after entering the store, a manic Jeffrey emerges, dragging a young woman with him. He shoves her into Will's car and shouts a single word: "Drive!" Shaken and confused, Will obeys. Suddenly these three men find themselves completely out of their element, holding a frightened young girl hostage without the slightest idea of what to do next. They're already guilty of kidnapping and robbery; it's only a matter of time before they find out what else they might be guilty of . . . "Will keep readers on the edge of their seats . . . As you read, you think you know which way the author is driving the narrative, only to have it swerve several times before the fascinating conclusion." -Library Journal (starred review) "A carefully calibrated study of how even the most highly evolved members of our species can become feral under pressure." -The New York Times "Absolutely first-rate." -John Lescroart
