The follow-up to Sunday Times number 2 bestseller and Radio 2 book club pick Black-Eyed Susans.
Having lived his life suspected of being a serial killer, Carl Louis Feldman begins his journey into old age at a nursing home in Texas. Though he was never charged with any crimes, the staff aren't sorry to see him go when his estranged daughter arrives to take her father on what could be his last road trip.
When Carl protests that this is not his daughter at all, the nurses are all too ready to excuse it as a product of his deteriorating mind. Were those suspicions about him true? Does he know where the missing women are buried? And if he is an honest man, who has just driven him away from safety?
