Publishers Weekly calls this moving novel by acclaimed author Will Allison a tight drama, part psychological thriller, part tragedy. Taking his daughter Sara home from school one day, New Jersey accountant Glen drives his car into another vehicle, killing its driver. Since no one else saw the accident, Glen lies about it to the police - a decision that sends his life spiraling out of control.

A tenacious detective thinks Sara might have seen more than she knows, or more than her parents will let her tell. And when Glen tries to prevent the detective from questioning Sara, he finds himself in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game that could end in a lawsuit or prison. What he doesn't see coming is the reaction of his wife, Liz - a panicked plan that threatens to tear their family apart in the name of saving it.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Rosinski | 2/9/2014

    " Quick read, very thought provoking in a "What would you do" sort of way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara Landers | 2/8/2014

    " I read two great reviews, but I was very disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gloria | 2/3/2014

    " I wasn't completely thrill with the authors writing but he must have done something right because I had nightmares for two nights while reading this novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley Green | 2/1/2014

    " To start July 1 and done all ready. Its a fast read as its just over 200 pages. Hmmm the little things we do and how they effect those around us. I say she saw this as an excuse. She gave up too easily. And the little one is right she knew what wad going on all along. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Brinkman | 1/7/2014

    " Really captivating but a bit of a downer. Not sure how I feel about it... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tomw | 1/7/2014

    " I'm a great fan of epistolary novels. This one is no exceptions. I started it today. The plot begins immediately. The style is direct, cssual and the characters speak in sentences, written in believable prose. I couldn't put the book down. I finished it. As a driver in NJ, it's important to keep cool arouind the nuts on the road: there are many! Yet, when I finished the book, I wondered: "What would I have done, in the same scenario?" I really liked the honesy in Sara. I think Liz was too muich a product of her upbringing. If anyone else is reading this post, pick up a copy of "Long Drive Home." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan | 12/23/2013

    " This book was an easy, short, simple read. I loved that it had my heart beating so fast as it was giving details about the accident. I loved the message it had about the decisions people make and the possible consequences that could affect them and then in return affect all their loved ones.I didn't really like the ending though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 12/20/2013

    " I couldn't put this book down. I thought it was so stressful to read though, I felt the characters burden of carrying his secret. On top of that, I am not the most patient driver, what if this happened to me? Would I keep details secret too? Great little read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 11/5/2013

    " It hooked me right away, and I really loved the concept. I wasn't as impressed with the second half of the book, though. It was still a good book and a quick read, plus it was quite thought provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 10/25/2013

    " Book was very good. Felt there needed to be a bit more closure for readers at the end of the story, however, overall, kept my interest and was a fast read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary Elizabeth Morton | 10/16/2013

    " What a snooze fest! How can a 182 page book feel so long & boring?? The father in this book made a mistake & refused to come clean about it...therefore destroying his life & his family's life. Stupid! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vianna Tedder | 10/1/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 6/3/2012

    " Quick read with an easy-to-relate-to plot line. The tone of the book was easy to follow. The book made you realize how even the slightest action in which you mean no harm, could turn into a life changing event and cause more harm than you can deal with. "
