9780061138003: Delusion

The monster storm "Bernardine" did more than devastate the tiny Gulf Coast community of Belle Ville.

It uncovered suppressed evidence that exonerates a man wrongly imprisoned for murder.

Twenty years ago Nell Jarreau identified Alvin "Pirate" DuPree as the murderer who killed her boyfriend right in front of her—and she later went on to marry the detective, now the police chief, who made the arrest. She and Clay raised a daughter and had a happy life—but now Pirate is free, leaving Nell haunted by doubt, guilt, fear . . . and troubling hints that a rot may be festering at her own family's core. For the sake of her sanity, her marriage, and the safety of those she loves, Nell must uncover the truth about a nightmare that will not end. But the search is leading her into twisting dark alleys she might never escape from . . . where a wild card ex-con waits in the 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:

Abrahams, who has been dividing his time lately between literary thrillers for adults (his stock-in-trade for years) and his award-winning Echo Falls mystery series for kids (the second volume, Behind the Curtain, appeared in 2006), returns to the adult beat with this psychological suspense tale. Nell Jarreau considers her life to be perfect: a loving husband; a job she likes; a nice home; a beautiful daughter. But that wasn’t always so; her first love (and the father of her daughter) was gunned down 20 years before. Now, based on new evidence, the man imprisoned for the crime has been exonerated. “Pirate” is free. Could Nell’s identification all those years ago have been wrong? Did she send an innocent man to jail? Her husband, one of the men who investigated the case, reassures her; it’s just one of those legal snafus, he insists. But his odd behavior and questions posed by an ambitious reporter are puzzling enough to make her doubt herself. In the meantime, Pirate enters a world he no longer understands and tries to apply his jailhouse mentality to new feelings and situations. As the story unfolds through the measured, very different perspectives of Pirate and Nell, readers catch a glimpse of how betrayal and loyalty can be equally deadly. --Stephanie Zvirin
