“[A] one-sitting, nail-biting chronicle of how one bad decision can lead to destruction.” — Richmond Times-Dispatch
“A brilliant, poignant and gut-wrenching morality play. A cautionary tale that’s hands down the best job any writer has done in capturing the latest of times to test men’s, and women’s, souls.” — Providence Journal
“Everything to Lose will grab readers from the book’s opening pages.” — Associated Press
“A fine thriller…Gross skillfully keeps his plot moving forward through scenes of emotional richness, then jittery suspense.” — Booklist (starred review)
“Loved every word of the book as I tore through in one sitting… Enjoy this wild ride.” — Bookreporter.com
A determined, down on her luck, mom caring for her handicapped son becomes entangled in a murderous conspiracy to keep a twenty year-old secret buried in this blistering thriller, set during the tragic aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, from NYT #1 bestselling author Andrew Gross, in the mold of his previous bestseller, No Way Back.
While driving along a suburban back road, Hilary Blum, who’s just lost her job and whose deadbeat husband has left her alone to care for her son with Asperger’s, witnesses a freakish accident. A car ahead of her careens down a hill and slams into a tree. Rushing to help, she discovers the driver dead—and a satchel stuffed with a half a million dollars.
That money could prevent her family’s ruin and keep her special needs son in school. In an instant, this honest, achieving woman who has always done the responsible thing makes a decision that puts her in the center of maelstrom of unforeseeable consequences and life-threatening recriminations—a terrifying scheme involving a twenty-year-old murder, an old woman who’s life has been washed out to sea, and a powerful figure bent to keep the secret that can destroy him hidden.
With everything to lose, everything she loves at risk, Hilary connects to a dogged, determined police official from Staten Island, reeling from the disaster of Sandy, to bring down an enemy who will stop at nothing to keep what that money was meant to silence buried. Like 15 Seconds and No Way Back, Everything To Lose is a propulsive thriller filled with tension and unexpected twists, but also with an unlikely relationship, and the pathos of a world crippled by Hurricane Sandy.). Pitting an ordinary woman against powerful figures, this explosive and heartbreaking tale of suspense will appeal to fans of Harlan Coben, Lee Child, and David Balducci.
