I can't really share in great detail about this book without revealing too much of the plot.
Allison's characters were all very believable to me and I thought the plot was very well thought out.
To me this is a psychological thriller that definately delivered. Glen Bauer, an ordinary loving father and husband has a tiny case of road rage that turns into a game of chicken that leaves a young driver dead.
The police rule the whole thing an accident, but Glen's conscience and maybe his 6-year-old daughter (who was in the back seat) knows better.
Allison's eye for the details of marriage and fatherhood, and his deconstruction of what can happen when a good man makes one stupid move, are what keeps you turning pages.
A small action (or, perceived action) can have devastating consequences. Glen was in one panic, Liz in another. It will break your heart.
I enjoyed this book and I am anxious to read Allison's other book!
