Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2008 Indie Next List
“This thriller about a young couple struggling to have a baby is a primer on what not to do when you find your surly tenant has died in his sleep and left $370,00 in cash stashed in his kitchen. A great read!”
-- Jennie Turner-Collins, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH


Description

The spectacular Dutton debut of a thriller writer whose ecstatically acclaimed work draws comparisons to luminaries such as Elmore Leonard, George Pelecanos, and Dennis Lehane

A family, and the security to enjoy it: that's all Tom and Anna Reed ever wanted. But years of infertility treatments, including four failed attempts at in-vitro fertilization, have left them with neither. The emotional and financial costs are straining their marriage and endangering their dreams. So when their downstairs tenant--a recluse whose promptly delivered cashier's checks were barely keeping them afloat--dies in his sleep, the $400,000 they find stashed in his kitchen seems like fate. More than fate: a chance for everything they've dreamed of for so long. A fairy-tale ending.

But Tom and Anna soon realize that fairy tales never come cheap. Because their tenant wasn't a hermit who squirreled away his pennies. He was a criminal who double-crossed some of the most dangerous men in Chicago. Men who won't stop until they get revenge, no matter where they find it.
