When Jar learns that Rosa, the love of his life, has committed suicide, he can’t believe it, even though he knows she was very depressed over the death of her father. In addition to the fact that her body has never been found, Jar just knows that Rosa wouldn’t leave him this way.
Jar isn’t the only one with doubts; Rosa’s aunt Amy doesn’t believe Rosa would kill herself either. Together they keep hope alive despite all evidence to the contrary. There is something big going on. Jar is being watched and followed. But by whom and why? Was Rosa involved in something nefarious?
Adding to the intrigue in this dark and involving novel, Amy’s husband Martin has his own secrets. He’s being quietly investigated by the government for possible involvement with child pornography, and he’s obsessed with illegal and cruel experimentations on animals for a new depression drug.
This novel exposes a dark side of pharmacology that will have readers on the edge of their seats. Perfect for book clubs interested in the strength and the fragility of the human psyche.
