Inhaltsangabe: College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same.

Iverson is a dying Vietnam veteran--and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home, after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws himself into uncovering the truth, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a haunting childhood memory. 

Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of Carl?s conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before it?s too late to escape the fallout?

Rezension: "Allen Eskens delivers a mesmerizing debut, unfolding decades of secrets in a rewarding tale of redemption."

--JULIE KRAMER, Minnesota Book Award winner and author of "Delivering Death"

"Joe Talbert is an everyman hero--thoughtful, unassuming, and determined to rise above his circumstances. Smart, stylish writing sets the tone in this absorbing debut about Joe's efforts to unearth the truth behind a brutal murder while caring for his autistic brother. A rich and highly satisfying mystery!"

--LYNNE RAIMONDO, author of "Dante's Poison

"This tale of inequality lured me in from the first page. Some children quietly carry tremendous burdens, and Allen Eskens is masterful in exposing the frustrations of a young adult trying to escape the clutches of an abusive, alcoholic parent--all while trying to take college classes, protect a younger brother, and investigate a murder three decades old. This debut novel is breathtaking, the plot real, heart-wrenching, and hopeful. Eskens writes my kind of book."

--SUSAN FROETSCHEL, 2014 Mary Higgins Clark Award nominee and author of "Fear of Beauty
