A Novel of Suspense and Obsession…
In their last anguished moments together, Lee Anne, as an act of revenge, gives Val a picture of his brother, Davis, who just several months before has been killed in a bizarre accident. Lee Anne will tell Val nothing about the photo, but for seventeen years she has sent him fragmented and cryptic messages on unsigned postcards which seem to be the aftershocks of a terrible event. And for seventeen years Val has dared not reply. Now, he is on his way back to see her, even as he fears it may cost him everything.
"I am not lying when I say this book is better than Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn."
—Melanie Bishop for Huffington Post Books
“Poverman’s fifth book is a dazzler. At its best, and that’s often, a powerful group of stories: one of the finest collections since Christopher Tilghman’s In a Father’s Place.” —Kirkus Review (starred)
