Description
The basis for the hit movie starring James Franco and Kate Hudson
A thriller by the author of the Brilliance Saga and The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes
-Good People is] gleefully dread-filled, mercilessly tense, and moves with the speed of something fired from a sawed-off.---Dennis Lehane
Tom and Anna Reed are young, middle-class, and in love. But financial pressures and the struggle to have a baby are grinding them down. So when they find $370,000 in their tenant's apartment, -happily ever after- seems one risky decision away.
But before the week is over, they'll know exactly where the money is from--and come face to face with ruthless men who have been double-crossed. Men who won't stop until they get revenge.
Nothing in life is free, and for Tom and Anna, happiness may cost more than they can bear to pay...
