While Bram made Juke seem rounded enough to me, and the other characters are duly implicated in their own racism and misconceptions, it’s still treacherous territory, and as a white man I cannot judge how fair the depiction is.

His books have earned the Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony Awards, and many have been developed into Netflix Original Drama series, including his adaptations of The Stranger, The Innocent, Gone for Good and The Woods. Susan and Dante Loriman meet with their son's (Lucas) doctor (Mike Baye) only to be told Lucas urgently needs a kidney transplant. Now, nobody has actually approached me demanding an explanation for why I bothered to read this, but I really wish they would, as I’ve already got my alibi worked out, so I figure it would be a shame not to share it. AND the plot continues to layer with the abductions and murders of two women connected to this same neighborhood.He starts to chase after what looks to be one of Adam's friends, but is then confronted and severely beaten by an unknown group. However, once I was a few chapters in, I was thoroughly engrossed in what was happening and found it hard to put down. This erotic, suspenseful novel captures the big-band feel of New York City in the forties, the intensity of a nation at war, and the passion of men for their country—and for each other. Book club is a social group but it's also a group that introduces new ideas, shares new perspectives and opens our minds.

The young boy doesn't have much hope unless they can locate his actual father or a paternal relative. I’ve had this paperback for years on my shelf and never knew it was written by one of my favorite authors. This book is no exception, and there's a sub-plot in the book that seems to exist for no purpose other than to allow for a totally unbelievable development right at the end.

Hank is from Texas and has the general prejudices white people particularly from Texas have regarding black people. At the end of Chapter Six we are teased with the mother's realization that Spencer in fact was not alone the night he killed himself.

Adam is not around when his father comes to pick him up to attend the hockey game, and Mo tells Mike how to use the GPS on Adam's phone to track him. They install a spy program on Adam's computer and within days they are jolted by a strange message to their son from an unknown correspondent: "Just stay quiet and all safe. In Tom Driberg's biography by Wheen there are a few pages of his visit to the US before the war in which he witnesses and comments on the activities of Nazi rallies and supporter meetings in New York. And that’s a pretty good question, isn’t trust supposed to be an integral part of a healthy relationship?

He also explores how fragile our everyday lives are--how our dedication to lives and family and children can come undone by the smallest thing--an unkind remark from a teacher, a car accident, or the fact that we resemble someone else and are mistaken for them. All that being at least sort of the case, I’m delighted to note that precisely the opposite obtains with regard to Christopher Bram’s first two novels.It held my interest, but the characters were so off-putting that I couldn't muster up sympathy for any of them.
