This novel reinforces the adage, “It’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up.” This is the story of a family that seems picture-perfect on the outside, but is oh-so-damaged the closer you look. Dr. Robert Hart receives the Man of the Year award from the community of Sag Harbor. What should be a joyful family weekend ends in a death followed by a cover-up. As the reader, you are left to wonder if anyone ever really knows the truth. It is suspenseful and will cause you to continue reading way past your bedtime.
