Jacob Cameron Asprey, Jr., is the charming son of a charming crook who’s currently residing in the state pen. Strangled by family ties, Jake is barely scraping by, working as a lifeguard at the tony country club on the other side of town. He’s marking time, treading water, haunted by Sally Godstreet, the woman he’s loved all his life—the woman he should have made a life with, now orbiting just out his reach.

When a local crime boss offers him a deal he’d be a fool to take and a chump to pass up, Jake sees a way out of his troubles—until his options begin to close down, and he finds himself at the heart of a dark plot that will place those he loves in harm’s way.

This is How You Fall is a story of old flames, old debts, and a new twist on an old con. Part-heist, part-love story, and part-literary noir thriller, it's a moody rumination on identity and loyalty, with dazzing plot twists that lead to an inevitable, destructive conclusion.

About the Author:

Keith was born in Durham, North Carolina in 1971 but was raised in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. He attended Hobart College in Geneva, New York. He is an editor for The New York Times, and lives in Westchester with his wife, Jessica, and his daughters, Grace and Margot.

He is the author of Ghostfires, The Are of Losing, and Cooking for Gracie," a memoir based on food writing first published in The New York Times.

From Booklist:

In small-town Pennsylvania, Jake Asprey Jr. learns the strength of unspoken power structures and family legacy. His life is indelibly marked by his father, who was sent to prison for multiple white-collar crimes, including tax fraud. Jake was then 14. At 25, he is booted out of Bucknell when the IRS seizes the fund that was paying his tuition. Hired as a lifeguard at the country club where his longtime love, Sally Godstreet, is executive chef, Jake is offered the management position that Sally thinks is intended for her, forcing Jack to choose between money and love—unless he takes a shady deal with more strings attached than he could have suspected. Levels of suspense and danger ratchet up, with nice plot twists along the way, as Jake attempts to find a way out of the morass. Dixon (The Art of Losing, 2007) creates fully dimensional characters who must deal with a reality that isn’t pretty and that ultimately leaves its mark on them. A skillfully told story, gritty and dark to the end. --Michele Leber
