Abstract:

"The author of Killer Choice, a thriller "full of shocks and twists you won't see coming" (Lee Child), delivers a nail-biting novel about a hit and run, and a lie that goes horribly wrong ... Her son accidentally killed a man. They cover it up. Nothing goes according to plan. Seventeen-year-old Joshua Jackson is the son of divorced parents. His life in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is nothing out of the ordinary. Until the night that he accidentally kills someone with his car--and pretends that nothing ever happened ... But there was a witness who has left a loose end at the scene of the crime, and when Joshua goes back to clean up, his car is stolen--with the dead body in the trunk. With nowhere to turn, he tells his mother everything. When she reluctantly agrees to help him, they'll both become ensnared in a series of events that will trap him and his family in a web of criminality and deceit. Nothing is safe from harm, and with every decision they're forced to make, Joshua and his family are pulled further away from the normal Midwestern life they've always known. The night hides a multitude of sins and sinners--ones that they'll never see coming.."--

"Her son accidentally killed a man. They cover it up. Then, everything goes wrong. When eighteen-year-old Joshua Mayo takes a man's life in a horrible accident, he leaves the scene and the body without reporting the crime to the police. He hopes to put the awful night behind him, and move on with his life. But, of course, he ends up telling his mother Karen what happened. Karen has raised Joshua on her own in Cedar Rapids, Iowa--and she thought they'd finally made it. He was doing well in school and was only months from starting college. After hearing his dark confession, she's forced to make a choice no parent should have to make, one that draws them both into a web of deceit that will change their lives forever--if they make it out alive."--
