“Scott deftly exposes how life-limiting even the most well-intentioned lies can be. . . . Each chapter of this enrapturing novel is elegantly brief and charged with barely contained emotion. Yet Scott’s subject remains vast: the idea that the law itself does not protect the innocent, and ‘that what matters most is knowledge—of ourselves and others.’” —The New York Times Book Review
In this gripping debut, a young woman unravels her mother’s affair with the man who killed her, the man who her father paid to help break up their marriage.
