Luther Albright is a devoted father and a designer of dams, a self-controlled man who believes he can engineer happiness for his family by sheltering them from his own emotions. But when an earthquake shakes his Sacramento home, the world Luther has constructed with such care begins to tilt: his son's behavior becomes increasingly bizarre and threatening, his loving wife seems to grow distant, the house he built with his own hands shows its first signs of decay, and a dam of his design comes under investigation for structural flaws exposed by the tremors. Nightmarish connections begin to whisper at Luther from the most innocent of places as debut novelist MacKenzie Bezos tightens her net of psychological suspense around the reader with bravura skill. This is a harrowing portrait of an ordinary man who finds himself tested and strives not to be found wanting.

You had one copy of this book but the book is missing, so you do not really have even one copy of this book. You do not mention if you are requesting the last borrower to return it, or whether you plan to purchase another one, or if it is a book you used to own and have no intention of ever replacing it. And you want to know what I think of my experience on this site. really, well not a lot. I am wondering that if someone actually reads this, will they get in touch with me and let me know if I can ever expect to get it from you or will you just ignore my question?
