Description

One man must prove his innocence while finding which friend betrayed him in this high-drama, action-packed novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Family Business series.
Jay Crawford has spent too long paying for a crime he didn't commit. For ten years, he's been in prison, waiting for the right opportunity to prove his innocence. But when his family is threatened, the time for waiting is over. Jay just didn't realize that escaping would be the easy part...
To get justice, he'll need the help of the three best friends who have always had his back — Wil, Kyle and Allan. But how long will Allan let Jay stay in his house if his new wife seems to prefer the sexy ex-con sleeping on their couch? And does helping Jay mean Wil finally gets pulled into the not-exactly-legal Duncan family business? As Kyle finds his loyalties — and his finances — stretched to the limit, who will he have to sacrifice?
A man on the run requires absolute trust, but Jay might just be setting himself up for the ultimate betrayal...

        Jay Crawford has just escaped from a maximum security prison after serving 10 years for a rape he didn't commit. Now he's about to realize that life as a fugitive may put everyone he loves in danger.Weber returns with the cast of Married Men (2001), who are fiercely devoted to friendship, sex, and scandal. Pushed to confess to the crime in order to make parole, Jay busts out. Although his jailbreak may put each of his friends at risk for aiding and abetting, none of them shies away from doing what's best for "the family." Soon U.S. Marshals show up in Kyle Richmond's backyard--while he and his wife, Lisa, indulge in afternoon erotic play--and the pressure is on. Meanwhile, Wil Duncan is being downsized out of a job and courted by his uncle to join the shadowy family business, a job he would refuse, but his wife, Diane, has grown quite accustomed to living in style. The fourth friend, Allen, is realizing that his newlywed wife, Cassie, may be less trustworthy than he thought. Despite the risks, the friends band together to help Jay evade the marshals. But Jay's troubles with the law pale in comparison to the repercussions he fears from Ashlee, his accuser. Will she exact revenge through his family? Disguised as a woman, Jay begins his own detective work, which collides with his friends' troubles at every turn. Staccato sentences, rapidly shifting perspectives, and multiple plot twists propel Weber's storyline. While the speed ratchets up the tension, it barely obscures the thinness of the characters. The women, in particular, suffer, with each assessed according to her physique, sexual availability, and loyalty to her man's wishes. A testosterone-driven tale of bromance and beautiful yet shifty women.

        November 15, 2016
        In this rapidly moving drama, best-selling Weber leaps back many years and many books to revisit the four characters who starred in Married Men (2001). Jay has been in prison for 15 years for a rape he did not commit. Worried about his children, and desperate to clear his name, he manages to escape. Now he is counting on his friends to help. But wealthy and successful Kyle's wife, Lisa, does not want Kyle to assist Jay. Will doesn't want to be involved with Jay's situation either, since he has his hands full with looming layoffs at work. But Allan's extravagant new wife is only too happy to entertain Jay when he hides out at their place. Each of the men struggles with misplaced trust. Weber's skill at turning the four flawed friends into sympathetic characters affirms his trademark approach to tales of characters making terrible choices. Though this novel is predictable at times, the clever conclusion will shock readers. Kimberla Lawson Roby's fans will also appreciate this adventure.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
