The Descent of Man by Kevin Desinger

One night Jim, a quiet wine steward, wakes to find two men trying to steal his car. Against the petitions of his wife, he goes outside to get the plate number of the thieves’ truck. Instead, something comes over him and he drives away in their truck until he recovers his wits and realizes what he’s done. When Jim learns that the two would-be thieves are brothers with a history of violence, he soon finds himself over his head in a mire of sinister events and must risk everything to regain what he can of his life before that night.

This book was spellbinding! I made the mistake of beginning the final third of the book shortly before bedtime. Not only was it so creepy that I kept glancing around my darkened room as I read, but it was so riveting that I had to keep reading and reading and reading until the wee hours of the morning. So definitely buy this book. But don't start the later chapters anywhere near your bedtime-unless you, too, want to be reading at 3 A.M.

Not your usual who-dunnit run of the mill mystery. Could happen to you! Jim, a wine steward, quickly gets in over his head in this spell-binding mystery. A good read!
