Nearly 30 years later, Nicky Jack mysteriously returns to DeClare. His sudden reappearance will stun the people of DeClare and stir up long-buried emotions and memories. But what Nicky Jack discovers among the people who remember the night he vanished is far more than he, or anyone, bargains for. Piece by piece, what emerges is a story of dashed hopes, desperate love, and a shocking act with repercussions that will cry out for justice...and redemption.
Full of the authentic heartland characters that Billie Letts writes about so beautifully, Shoot the Moon is a hypnotic tale filled with suspense and emotional truth. It further establishes Billie Letts as an American writer to be reckoned with, an original storyteller whose words go straight to our heart.

"Memorable tale of love, loss, humanity, and hope." (Booklist)
This book has brought me back to the roots that I was raised by. Seek the truth, even thou it can hurt.
This was another one of Billie Letts fine books about the human spirit.
Loved LDP's narration!
The addmission of guilt
His characters come alive!
The characters really came alive in this story
I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.
Believable characters, good contrast between contemporary American city life and small-town life. Enjoyable from start to finish.
I am a Billie Letts fan and always enjoy her quirky characters and the small-town southern feel her books provide. I also enjoy a good mystery and this one has some of that too. No, this book will probably not change your life or alter your perspective on the world, but if you are looking for a nice, well-told story, this should fit the bill.
I purchased this book because I am a big fan of Billy Letts other story, Where the Heart Is. This book drew me in, however, I was not a fan of the ending or the romantic story in it.
