Lacy Eye

Jessica Treadway. Grand Central, $26 (352p) ISBN 978-1-4555-5407-2
In this deftly plotted psychological thriller from Treadway (And Give You Peace), a brutal home invasion leaves Hanna Schutt permanently disfigured and her husband, Joe, dead. The speech-impaired Hanna communicates to the police, via what the press dubs “the Nods,” that the culprit is Rud Petty, the boyfriend of her younger daughter, Dawn. This, in addition to circumstantial evidence, leads to Petty’s conviction. Three years later, Petty has won an appeal, and Hanna is terrified the case will hinge on her faulty memory. College-age Dawn—always an awkward child who was teased mercilessly for her lazy eye—returns to the family home in upstate New York for the first time since the tragedy. It’s common knowledge the prosecution sought to indict her for her role in the attack, but charges wouldn’t stick. Hanna must learn to separate her fierce love for her daughter and the slowly emerging truth about that fateful night. Treadway paints a devastating portrait of a family torn apart from both the outside and within. Five-city author tour. Agent: Kimberly Witherspoon, Inkwell Management. (Mar.)
