Big City Eyes

by Delia Ephron

This is a novel suffused with anxiety and dread. However, it's an easy read, shot through with humour and tenderness in equal measure, even when dealing with the darker side of human nature.


I moved to Sakonnet Bay to save Sam. I woke up with the idea. It had been one of those problem-solving nights. Having fallen asleep in a state of intense distress, I awakened with the notion that if I uprooted my life for three years, I could avert disaster.

I'm a journalist ... and there is no telephone number I can't wheedle out of someone, no tid-bit I can't unearth. Now I would simply apply my creative doggedness to the problem of keeping my son safe.
