Publisher's Summary

How can you turn down the last request of a dying friend? You can’t, even if it tears your world apart. 

Chris Baker has wasted most of his life fearing emotional connections. Emptiness has become his comfort zone. And yes, there are painful reasons for his fears. But an unusual request from an estranged friend exposes his heart in the most difficult way possible…with the true love he once betrayed. 

When Chris agrees to reunite his friend’s grown son, Max, with his mother in British Columbia, he’s forced to confront the unresolved passions of their explosive affair that triggered her deportation years before. And though the drive to Canada may recall a few idyllic moments from the 60’s, today’s road trip is a dangerous one as Chris and Max are chased by drug dealers and pursued by Max’s impetuous girlfriend. 

All the while, Max keeps hidden his real motive for going to Canada and the actual getaway plan he has in mind.

Engaging Storyline, Relatable Characters

I got hooked on this book with its strong premise of a dying friend asking his long estranged friend to escort his son to a new treatment center. This is a classic picaresque plot like "The Last Detail," as one example, but this resonates strongly to anyone in a parenting role. But the story continues to unfold exploring the different paths and choices we face in life and how we can change or if time changes, and we see the world and the people around us in new ways. And find true happiness. The other enjoyable aspect for anyone from California is the detailed description of Los Angeles, the California Coast going north to Canada and the settings in general. I felt like I was in the car or the ferry with the hero and his companions. The reading is also very immersive conveying the pathos and joy threaded throughout the story.

Read it!!

Had a chance to both read and listen to the audiobook, and they’re both great! It’s a moving story about grabbing hold of lost love, rather than letting your fears and insecurities loosen your grip. For both young and old, it is a beautiful piece that functions as connective tissue between the bones of our different generations. Give it a read!!
