Scottoline delivers once again with Keep Quiet, an emotionally gripping and complex story about one man's split-second decision to protect his son - and the devastating consequences that follow. Jake Buckman's relationship with his sixteen-year-old son Ryan is not an easy one, so at the urging of his loving wife, Pam, Jake goes alone to pick up Ryan at their suburban movie theater. On the way home, Ryan asks to drive on a deserted road, and Jake sees it as a chance to make a connection. However, what starts as a father-son bonding opportunity instantly turns into a nightmare. Tragedy strikes, and with Ryan's entire future hanging in the balance, Jake is forced to make a split-second decision that plunges them both into a world of guilt and lies. Without ever meaning to, Jake and Ryan find themselves living under the crushing weight of their secret, which threatens to tear their family to shreds and ruin them all. Powerful and dramatic, Keep Quiet will have listeners and book clubs debating what it means to be a parent and how far you can, and should, go to protect those you love.

"Every parentÕs worst nightmare is brought chillingly to life by narrator Ron Livingston in this engaging mystery. When Jake allows his 16-year-old son, Ryan, to drive past the curfew of his learner's permit, he has no idea of the harrowing repercussions he will unleash on himself, his happy family, and their future. Livingston deftly captures the storyÕs many charactersÑparents, teachers, other adults, and Ryan's classmates. However, his best characters are sensitive, boyish Ryan and genial Doctor DaveÑor, at least, thatÕs how he seems at first. As the terror grows, Livingston's measured approach keeps the story believable. The surprise conclusion and epilogue also contribute to the riveting listening experience.
