Big City Eyes by Delia Ephron

Big City Eyes

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.

Extract

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.
