Keep Quiet
"Jake Whitmore is enjoying a rare bonding moment with his sixteen-year-old son, Kurt, when disaster strikes. They get in a terrible car accident that threatens to derail not only Kurt's chances at college, but his entire future. Jake makes a split-second decision that saves his son from formal punishment, but plunges them both into a world of guilt, lies, and secrecy. Just when Jake thinks he has everything under control, a malevolent outsider comes forward with the power to expose Jake's secret and taunts him to the breaking point. Keep Quiet is the powerful and gut-wrenching tale of the unraveling--and the ultimate redemption--of a family"--

Didn't take long to figure out someone else killed the girl. So many lies, so much deceit. Did not care much for this book.

This books makes you wonder how far would you go to protect your child. What would you do in a situation that the Buckman's faced??

Not exactly my cup of tea being All American teenage and parental angst with the team sports thrown in but... the story-line was well sustained and it would likely make a good movie of that genre.

Great read! At first, it seemed like maybe I had read this book before but I knew I hadn't. There are some interesting twists to this one.

What a powerful novel. I was immersed in the lives of Jake, his wife Pam, and their son, Ryan from page 1 and stayed tuned till the very end.
Is Pam a judge first or a mother? Is Jake a good father or just a provider? Is Ryan an achiever or a normal teenager who messes up? These and other questions keep us embroiled in the story which starts with a disastrous momentary lapse in decision making. Should the family "Keep Quiet?" or should they not? What would I do?
Rather than becoming a plot buster let me just say that Lisa Scottoline took the only way out of the situation and so it was somewhat expected; but better a tearjerker throughout than a tearjerker at the end. A definite must read.

Very good book. Really shows how something you try to hide can get so out of hand.

I loved this book! One of her best yet. Wanted to turn to the end to see how it was resolved but somehow managed to restrain myself!

Yeah... I wish Scottoline would stick with the legal thrillers, and not the chick lit baloney. Not a great read.

This book is a page-turner. I read into the wee hours needing to know what happened next. Satisfying read with a surprise ending.

Why no large print? There are people who cannot read the small font. And people who don't like the e-book or don't have one.
