Susan Moore—sharp, thoughtful, deep, and wise—is spiraling into crisis. Her unfaithful husband is hiding a lot more than his affair with a reckless young woman. Mark Ready, the wayward soul who Susan by chance calls on for help, turns out to be the right person at the right time, despite all appearances. Through a series of awkward and sometimes hilarious missteps, he manages to bring everyone's secrets into the open, igniting at last the explosion of events that will change all of their lives for good.
Suspenseful and richly plotted, with vividly-drawn characters, Warren Lane is by turns funny and moving, offering a compelling portrait of ordinary people blundering their way through difficult times.
