Rx: “Man of the Year”

Prescribed by: Caroline Louise Walker

Prescribed for: Fans of authors Gillian Flynn and Wendy Walker

Side Effects: Lightheadedness and rapid breathing due to the twists and turns in this roller-coaster-ride of a domestic thriller.

Directions:  A deliciously dark, voyeuristic novel. The author uses multiple voices/points of view to delve deep into the minds and motivations of her characters. Equal parts disturbing and fascinating as you see how the same events could be perceived/manipulated/misinterpreted by each of the flawed protagonists in this fast-paced page turner.

Dr. Robert Hart’s world is turned upside-down when his college-aged son and his best friend arrive to celebrate Robert’s “Man of the Year” award. Robert’s wife invites the boys to stay with them for the summer, kicking off a series of events that will rock their marriage, shock the community, and rip open long-buried wounds, leading to a shocking conclusion you’ll never see coming.

Special Instructions: Nick has fond memories of the white pizza his father used to make.  Just one more reason that Dr. Hart may need one of these painkiller cocktails!
