The searing, New York Times bestseller—the suspense breakout of 2012—is now being made available in trade paperback, with an ending that will stay with readers for weeks, and fuel intense bookclub discussion.
From an award-winning author and a former attorney comes one of Delacorte’s breakout hits of 2012—a relevant and powerful story of family and justice. Andy Barber has been the respected Assistant District Attorney in his small Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. But everything he believes in is torn asunder when his own son, Jacob, is charged with murder. Andy desperately wants to believe in his son’s innocence, but the evidence is strong, Jacob’s behavior screams guilty, and a family under siege must draw strength from its most desperate places to survive, to rebuild—and to defend.
