Overview: Readers and critics have been enchanted by Mary McGarry Morris's unforgettable characters and masterly use of suspense in her four earlier novels, including the bestselling Songs in Ordinary Time. In her latest tour de force, Gordon Loomis returns to a changed world after twenty-five years in prison. His old neighborhood is blighted by drug dealers; his brother is eager to help but is too caught up in his own life; his loyal friend Delores makes him realize that he's just as afraid of relationships as he is of going back to jail; and his inherent decency draws the attention of a hungry child whose survival threatens the fragile balance that is Gordon's freedom.

This is the moving and powerful story of innocence and betrayal told in the endearingly wise voice of thirteen-year-old Nellie Peck. It is early summer, and her beloved father's business is failing. Forced to take care of her shy younger brother, Nellie is determined to make him--and herself--toughen up. Three strangers enter Nellie's protected life: mysterious and brutish Max Devaney works in her grandfather's junkyard, the thieving Bucky Saltonstall has just arrived from New York City, and Dolly Bedelia, a young stripper who rents the small apartment in the back of the Pecks' house, becomes the titillating focus of Nellie's eavesdropping. Nellie is justly proud of her own infallible lie detector until violence erupts in her young life and she is silenced by fear and scandal. The truth as she believes it is shocking and unthinkable, and with everyone's eyes riveted on her in the courtroom, Nellie finds herself compromised by moral confusion. No one will listen, no one believes her, and a man's life hangs in the balance

This is a darkly compelling story of how one man struggles to mend the gap that his crime and incarceration have torn in his life, coming to grips with the hole gouged in his personal universe

Ces derniers temps, Nellie Peck, treize ans, a enfin trouvé de quoi combler son désoeuvrement : espionner la nouvelle locataire de sa mère dans le petit studio attenant à leur maison. Activité d'autant plus excitante que l'arrivée de la jeune et jolie Dolly, danseuse de cabaret à la sensualité débordante, n'est pas passée inaperçue dans le quartier. Et rapidement, c'est à un véritable défilé de prétendants qu'assiste Nellie, cachée dans les arbres. Un matin, le corps de Dolly est retrouvé sans vie. Crime passionnel, vengeance ? Tous les regards se tournent vers Max, ancien délinquant sexuel, repoussé par la belle. Alors que le jeune homme risque la condamnation à vie, la voix d'une enfant s'élève : Nellie. Qui croire ? Entre des adultes respectables et une gamine à l'imagination débordante, le poids de la vérité pèsera-t-il assez lourd ?
