Larry Ingber fell deeply in love once . . . and it cost him forty years of his life. Branded "The Ivy League Killer" by the media that followed his sensational story of obsession and its consequences, Larry has at last been freed from prison and tossed into a world he barely understands. At one point, his life was brimming with promise. Now, he can barely find a job. And when Larry discovers that his lawyer has stolen the money his late parents had set aside for him, he comes very close to going off the rails. But the world is a more mysterious place than Larry can imagine, and it has surprises in store for him that will put him in grave danger, reunite him with his past, expose him to unscrupulousness, and teach him what it is truly like to have someone who cares about you.Filled with tension, nuance, and revelation, WHEN I GOT OUT is a remarkable story about what happens when the world you left behind and the world you never knew collide. PRAISE FOR PETER SETH'S NATIONAL BESTSELLER WHEN I GOT OUT: "Once I started reading I had to finish the book as fast as I could." - Stan Chervin, screenwriter, Academy Award nominee for Moneyball "Just when you think you know where the story is headed it changes directions. It's a roller coaster ride to the very last page." - Book Bug "Passionate, stark, haunted fiction that nails it on the head about young adult romance gone awry." - Crystal Book Reviews "A great beginning of a career for Peter Seth." - Literarily Illuminated.
