|About the Book|
Jon Dolan reaches for his cell phone, unaware hes helping to kill a woman a mile away. A woman hes never spoken to. A woman he can see. A woman who will spend her own last moments watching him die first. Kris was sure she knew what she was doing. But sometimes our decisions go wrong. Horribly wrong. So she high-tailed it out of town to save herself - and landed in the middle of a strangers deadly game of self-preservation. The neighbors in the hills think they know something about Terrence - and turn their prejudice into prophecy. Reading the obituaries leads a budding con man to widowed Mrs. Danbury, her balcony garden and her desperate grip on her family. What the hell is tunge anyway? Carson asks Nicholas mockingly. The ugly answer, hed soon learn, would involve him. Twenty-odd stories, each grounded in the last. Each with its own sordid ending. And a plot that throws the reader into a world that doubles back on itself, shooting shreds of humanity like shrapnel in this never-ending tale of human fallibility.
