Keep Quiet Book Review


 
I have a really great thriller to share with you called Keep Quiet written by Lisa Scottoline.
 
Synopsis:
New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award winning author Lisa Scottoline is loved by millions of readers for her suspenseful novels about family and justice. 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.
This was really a great story and you won't be disappointed! Lisa Scottoline has done it again with another awesome murder/mystery/thriller! I love it when a book comes together and keeps you spellbound the whole time and when I want to stay up and not go to sleep to finish it, well, it's that good!
 
It's got some twists and turns that you don't see coming until it's upon you. You will come to discover that all things are not what they seem and even an unintentional murder isn't what it seems to be.
 
Actually, it's a blessing that someone comes forward and attempts to blackmail Jake about this murder but that action in turn spurns on other events that eventually lead to a shocking discovery.
 
You will want to read this spellbinding thriller all the way through and see love and redemption win out in the end.
 
Happy Reading!

I haven't heard of her, but it sounds like a great read. I don't usually seek out mysteries, but sometimes they find me. I do love anything suspenseful, so maybe it's a genre I ought to explore.

I have not hear of this author or her books before. This book sounds like a good one. My favorite mystery books are the Preston and Child novel. Great writer's and good story lines.

I am a huge Lisa Scottoline fan I have been reading her books since I was a teenager. I started out with " Everywhere that Mary Went" and I was hooked. I haven't read her latest "Accused" yet because I buy paperback, but I have read most of her others, I'm sure that it is just as good as the rest.
