9780061130342: End of Story

Aspiring author Ivy Seidel accepts a part-time position teaching writing to a group of convicted criminals hoping the experience will add depth and darkness to her own work.

But in the haunting writings of charismatic inmate Vance Harrow she discovers a talent possibly greater than her own. And in the startling, disturbing stories Harrow has to tell, Ivy finds a dangerous new purpose—and a terrifying temptation that lures her into an inescapable world of shadows.

About the Author:

Peter Abrahams is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-five books, including the Edgar Award-winning Reality Check, Bullet Point, and the Echo Falls series for middle graders. Writing as Spencer Quinn, he is also the author of the Chet and Bernie series—Dog on It, Thereby Hangs a Tail, and To Fetch a Thief. He and his wife live in Massachusetts with their dog, Audrey.

From Booklist:

Aspiring New York scribe Ivy Seidel has the right things on her reume--an MFA in creative writing and three summers at a writing workshop--but no published work. Drowning in rejection letters, she isn't sure whether she should identify herself as a writer or a waitress. Then, when a suddenly successful friend offers her his old job as a writing teacher, she seizes it as if it were a lifeline--even though she'll be teaching inmates at Dannemora Prison upstate. The brutality of the place terrifies her, but she is fascinated by her students. One inmate in particular, Vance Harrow, seems to have poetry in his soul. A remarkable story he writes in class leads her to investigate his old life in the outside world, trying to determine how much is truth and how much is fiction. Soon convinced that Harrow is innocent, Ivy embarks on a quest to clear his name, which leads her into a world where the danger is terribly real. Billed as "a novel of suspense," End of Story is part thriller, part detective story. It's a slow build, relying more on psychological traps than harrowing escapes, but by the end, it's almost physically impossible to stop turning pages. Abrahams' prose, cool and vivid, keeps the focus exactly where it should be: on the story. Keir Graff
