At Barnes & Noble, White Plains, NY
WHITE PLAINS, NY—March 7 2014 — Barnes & Noble is thrilled to announce that we will welcome mystery author Lisa Scottoline to Barnes & Noble Booksellers in White Plains, NY on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 7:00 pm to speak about and sign her new book, Keep Quiet.
Lisa Scottoline’s profoundly moving novels bring emotionally charged questions of family, relationships and justice vividly to life, with her own background as an attorney often informing the storylines. Blending flawed, relatable and sympathetic characters with a an addictive, page-turning plot that’s impossible to put down, her latest standalone thriller, KEEP QUIET, is the story of one father making a split-second decision to save his son—and the consequences that follow.
Jake Whitmore has been trying to mend an ongoing rift with his sixteen year old son, Ryan. Just as they’re enjoying a rare bonding moment, when he’s not competing with the multitude of distractions that vie for Ryan’s attention, disaster strikes. A tragic car accident with Ryan at the wheel threatens to derail not only Ryan’s chances at college, but his entire future. Jake makes a split-second decision that saves his son from formal punishment, but plunges them both into a world of guilt, lies, and secrecy.
Making matters even worse, Jake’s wife Pam is up for a federal judgeship, with all the attendant background checks and interviews with the FBI. Ryan is devastated by the accident, and Jake fears he may not hold up under the scrutiny. Just when Jake thinks he has everything under control, Scottoline throws yet another curve ball their way, pushing them towards their limits.
Powerful and gut-wrenching, KEEP QUIET is the tale of the unraveling—and the ultimate redemption—of a family.
