One night in a quiet Hudson Valley town, a distraught woman stumbles into the police station—and lives are changed forever. A former darling of the 1980s pop scene, Aimee En claims that a teenage boy stole her car, then ran over another young man who'd rushed to help. Social media transforms badly-injured Liam into a folk hero, and the suspect, a high school outcast named Wade Reed, into a depraved would-be killer. But is Wade really guilty? And why won't he talk? Told from four points of view, this Edgar Award-winning novel unfolds in the voices of Wade's mother Jackie, his younger brother Connor, Aimee En, and a police officer with a tragic past.
