A Friend of the Family

Lauren Grodstein, Author, Rick Adamson, Read by , read by Rick Adamson. HighBridge Audio $34.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-59887-943-8

There are grave consequences when Pete Dizinoff, a successful doctor, tries to keep his son from being seduced by Laura, a possible murderess and the daughter of Pete's best friend. Grodstein's superb second novel is a deft portrayal of suburban life, and Adamson more than does justice to the fine material in his tour-de-force performance. With his ability to shift from pathos to restraint, he creates realistically layered characters that grip readers from the start and linger long after the finish. An Algonquin hardcover (Reviews, Jul. 6). (Nov.)
