Keep Quiet by Lisa Scottoline
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

For many thrillers finding out ‘whodunit’, how and why are the very point of the story, but in Keep Quiet we know what’s happened from the very start. The tension of the novel instead focuses on how the family try very hard not to unravel as the secret they’re carrying presses ever harder on their consciences. An intriguing look at the darker side of human nature and what we’ll do to protect the ones we love.

If you like Lisa Scottoline you might also like to read books by Mary Higgins Clark, James Patterson and Carl Hiaasen.

Synopsis

Keep Quiet by Lisa Scottoline

One decision. One family's future in ruins. When Jake Buckman decides to let Ryan, his sixteen-year-old son practice driving home along a deserted street, he has no idea of the deadly consequences. But in the darkness of night, a runner comes from nowhere and the hit is fatal. Now Jake and Ryan have two options: admit Ryan's responsibility ...or drive home as though nothing happened. What follows is not a clear-cut hit and run, but a split-second decision by a father who will do anything to protect his son. How much should a parent sacrifice for their child? And could any family survive the burden of such a terrible secret?
