Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield. One day, comfortable in her home and her second marriage, she receives, entirely out of the blue, a parcel containing the manuscript of her ex-husband's first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, he says.

As Susan reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of his character Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summer house in Maine. As the Hastings family's ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life.

Tony and Susan is a dazzling achievement: simultaneously a riveting portrayal of the experience of reading and a page-turning thriller, written in startlingly arresting prose. It is also a novel about fear and regret, revenge and aging, marriage and creativity.
