CAUGHT IN THE BACKWASH, THEY HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THEIR
For fans of Megan Abbott and Chris Bohjalian comes a
novel of moral complexity about friends who must choose
between self-preservation and doing the right thing in
the wake of a fatal boating accident. Set in the moody
off-season of Martha’s Vineyard, Everything That Follows
is a plunge into the dark waters of secrets and flexible
morals. The truth becomes whatever we say it is…
Around midnight, three friends take their partying from
bar to boat on a misty fall evening. Just as the weather
deteriorates, one of them suddenly and confusingly goes
overboard. Is it an accident? The result of an unwanted
advance? His body disappears quickly, silently, into the
dark water. The circumstances are murky, but what is
clear is that the other two need to notify the
authorities. Minutes become hours become days as they
hesitate, caught up in their guilt and hope that their
friend has somehow made it safely to shore. As valuable
time passes, they find themselves deep in a moral morass
with huge implications as they struggle to move forward
and live with their dark secret.
