A literary mystery that has tension so tight you could almost strum the chord and a premise so fascinating you wonder if it could really happen...or if it has happened.
The story's narrator is Adam Langer. The author is Adam Langer. A curious detail that adds to the questions provoked by the premise (which I won't spoil for you).
From the Book Description:
Adam is a writer and stay-at-home dad in Bloomington, Indiana, drawn into an uneasy friendship with the charismatic and bestselling thriller author Conner Joyce. Conner is having trouble writing his next book, and when a menacing stranger approaches him with an odd—and lucrative—proposal, events quickly begin to spiral out of control.
I can't tell you much more than that without spoiling the fun, but the suspense begins to give you a sense of disquiet, and you can't be completely sure of the reliability of the narrator. Which narrator, you may ask....
