about this book

Joan Didion’s electrifying first novel begins with a murder on the bank of the Sacramento River—a murder that is at once an act of vengeance and a blind attempt to shore up a disintegrating marriage. Out of that act, Didion constructs a tragic and beautifully nuanced work of fiction.
