9780151012503: Red Leaves

Eric Moore has reason to be happy. He has a prosperous business, a comfortable home, a stable family life in a quiet town. Then, on an ordinary night, his teenage son Keith is asked to babysit Amy Giordano, the eight-year-old daughter of a neighboring family. The next morning Amy is missing.

Suddenly Eric is one of the stricken parents he has seen on television, professing faith in his child's innocence. As the police investigation increasingly focuses on Keith, Eric must counsel his son, find him a lawyer, protect him from the community's steadily growing suspicion. Except that Eric is not so sure his son is innocent. And if Keith is not . . . and might do the same thing again . . . what then should a father do?

Red Leaves is a story of broken trust and one man's heroic effort to hold fast the ties that bind him to everything he loves.

From the Back Cover:

"Thomas Cook writes like a wounded angel, and Red Leaves is one of his masterworks."—Peter Straub

 
Eric Moore has a stable life in a quiet town. Then, on an ordinary night, his teenage son Keith babysits Amy Giordano, the eight-year-old daughter of a neighboring family. The next morning Amy is missing, and Eric isn't sure his son is innocent. Caught in a vortex of doubt and lies, Eric must find out what happened to Amy Giordano before his—and the community's—suspicions about Keith are proved right.  An Edgar Award Nominee for Best Novel

"Red Leaves is both heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching. A family can be 'briefly held,' and yet so enduring."--New York Daily News

"[Cook is] one of the most suspenseful of crime-fiction writers . . . Readers will glimpse blurred snapshots from their own lives--and be afraid."—Cleveland Plain Dealer

 
"This disturbing exploration of humans' true motives . . . builds to a rapid and unexpected climax."--Newsweek

THOMAS H. COOK has been nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award five times in four different categories, and won the Edgar for Best Novel for The Chatham School Affair. He lives in New York City and Cape Cod.
