What to expect

What happens when you face the true test of your moral character? What happens when you fail that test?

When Jake Conason goes to a party at his Jefferson University fraternity house, he’s sitting on top of the world. He’s got great grades, a gorgeous girlfriend, and an almost certain acceptance to his dream law school. He’s golden, set to ride a wave of opportunity and advantage far into his adulthood. Little does he know that the moment he walks into the party his life will change forever.

Straddling the worlds of respectability and depravity, this is a chilling, addictive thriller that delves into the heart of an antihero.

    Harlan Coben

    AudioFile
  • “Lyons…does a persuasive job of creating a creepy and almost charming antihero.”

    Booklist
  • “A psychologically chilling picture of a contemporary Raskolnikov.”

    Library Journal
  • “The tricky ending is biter-bit, but enigmatic enough to suggest that after the last page is turned, the bites may well go on…a creditable debut.”
