Strange but True by John Searles

After a mysterious fall from his New York City apartment, Philip Chase has moved back home with his mother, Charlene, a bitter woman who has never fully accepted the death of her younger son, Ronnie, five years earlier. Numb from watching too much television, rereading a tragic biography, and trading snipes with his mother, Philip is in stasis. But everything changes late one windy February night when Ronnies high school girlfriend shows up on their doorstep. A sad young woman who still bears the scars of the accident that took Ronnies life on the night of their prom, Melissa has unexpectedly found hope. She is nine months pregnant. And the father, she claims, is Ronnie. So begins this startling tale, which moves from one breathless surprise to another as Philip and his mother confront not only Melissas past but their own. Their desperate search for answers takes them on a poignant and emotional journey, ultimately placing them in the path of murder and revenge. At once a moving story of redemption and a heart-stopping work of suspense, Strange but True confirms John Searless place among the most gifted voices of his generation. Beautifully written and charged with a sublime wit, the novel brings to vibrant life a cast of characters that no reader will forget.
