Publishers Weekly calls this moving novel by acclaimed author Will Allison "a tight drama, part psychological thriller, part tragedy." Taking his daughter Sara home from school one day, New Jersey accountant Glen drives his car into another vehicle, killing its driver. Since no one else saw the accident, Glen lies about it to the police-a decision that sends his life spiraling out of control. "Allison's effortless prose and playful genre mixing showcase a burgeoning talent."-Publishers Weekly

"Written as a confessional by a father to his 8-year-old daughter about his having contributed to a teen's death in a car accident, this book--touted as a psychological thriller--is anything but. It's a morose story featuring a melancholy performance by a droning Tony Ward. The father, Glen, is pursued by a relentless cop who sometimes reminds one of Columbo--without the sense of humor. One expects the trap to spring. Instead, Glen's marriage falls apart, his daughter becomes distant, and the prospect of another's culpability in the teen's death ends in midair. Ward's reading is clear and easy to follow, but inevitably he adds to the sense of the listener's disappointment in the story. A thriller this is not. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
