Rate this:
A compulsively readable novel of feeling and suspense about two men and their families, and the hit-and-run death of a young boy.On an ordinary night in a quiet Connecticut town, the Learners stop at a gas station on their way home from a concert. Josh Learner, age 10, is standing at the side of the road when a car comes racing around the bend. Josh is hit and instantly killed. The car speeds away.The boy's father saw it happen. His eight-year-old sister believes it was her fault. His mother tries to keep herself -- and her family -- together. And as they slip into nightmare, the novel becomes a harrowing countdown to confrontation between the hit-and-run driver -- half running from his crime, half wanting to pay for it -- and Ethan Learner, in deadly pursuit of the unknown man who killed his son.Already hailed as "a nonstop read about people locked in a terrible embrace" (Ward Just) and a" first-rate work of fiction disguised as a page-turning thriller" (David Halberstam), Reservation Road is powerful, wrenching, impossible to put down.
