Scottoline delivers once again with Keep Quiet, an emotionally gripping and complex story about one man's split-second decision to protect his son - and the devastating consequences that follow.Jake Buckman's relationship with his sixteen-year-old son Ryan is not an easy one, so at the urging of his loving wife, Pam, Jake goes alone to pick up Ryan at their suburban movie theater. On the way home, Ryan asks to drive on a deserted road, and Jake sees it as a chance to make a connection. However, what starts as a father-son bonding opportunity instantly turns into a nightmare. Tragedy strikes, and with Ryan's entire future hanging in the balance, Jake is forced to make a split-second decision that plunges them both into a world of guilt and lies. Without ever meaning to, Jake and Ryan find themselves living under the crushing weight of their secret, which threatens to tear their family to shreds and ruin them all. Powerful and dramatic, Keep Quiet will have readers and book clubs debating what it means to be a parent and how far you can, and should, go to protect those you love.

  • Interesting plot

    By Orthodoxxxjewishgirl
    Hugely suspenseful with Piccoult-like emotional drama. Ending was a bit rushed and unrealistic but otherwise an enthrall inch read
  • Not for me

    By ExPalmNewton
    Too intense and upsetting for me. I like a mystery, but this one was too much.

    Lisa! This novel has real punch. I can't tell you how many times my jaw dropped from one sentence to the next. How cleverly you shifted directions causing me to laugh out loud at being caught with my mouth wide open in surprise! Loved the book. Keep them coming.

    This writer is so enthralling and keeps you very interested from page 1 to the end. I have read just a couple of her books, but I am so glad I found her stories. You can't even imagine what happens next in each story. I would love to have the gift she has.
