Publisher's Summary

Pete Simon's all-American life was everything he had ever wished for: a good home, a satisfying career, and a marriage still strong and loving after nearly 20 years. But in the days following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, everything was about to change.

It begins with the appearance of a stranger at his door. The next day his wife Lily disappears, leaving a note behind begging Pete not to follow her.

Now, with a business card from an antiques dealer in Barcelona as his only lead, he sets out to find his missing wife. But each door Pete opens leads him deeper into a painful and shocking past.

A haunting parable of good and evil and all the shades of humanity in between, Turncoat is a rocket-paced roller-coaster ride with surprises at every turn.

Wasn't sure where this one was going...

If you could sum up Turncoat in three words, what would they be?

Thoughtful
Twisting
Worthwhile

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most: The listener ( at least this one ) never knows where the resolution is, and how to get there. Fascinating at times.

Least: None to speak of, but some of the characters rationales are abit of a stretch.

What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

His accents and age differentials for the characters work well.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You just never know.

Any additional comments?

Well worth the investment of time. This story grows on you.
