Pal has a shameful secret that has dragged him into huge debt, and he is desperate that his teenage daughters and ex-wife don't find out. Sixteen-year-old Sandra also has a secret. She's in love with the delinquent Daniel William, a love so strong and pure that nothing can get in its way. Cecilie has the biggest secret of them all, a baby growing inside her. But she's trapped in her small-time, criminal existence, and dreams of an escape from it all. Over three fateful September days, these lives cross in a whirlwind of brutality, laughter, tragedy, and love that will change them forever. A fast-paced, moving, and darkly funny page-turner. A dense literary novel that moves like a thriller. . . Renberg gives us a novel, rooted in noir softened by comedy, that gets to the serious business of how our shortcomings are all linked."Kirkus Reviews. "An impressively well written, organized and presented thriller of a read from beginning to end."The Midwest Book Review
