What would you do if you saw a car drive off the road, tried but failed to save the driver’s life, and found a satchel on the floor containing $500,000? Would you keep it or do the right thing and turn it into the police? This is the question facing law abiding Hilary Cantor, who unfortunately has fallen on hard times. Her ex-husband is a deadbeat dad, her young son has Asberger’s but has been making marvelous progress at a pricey private school, her house is in danger of being foreclosed on, and she just lost her job. Could anyone blame her for giving into temptation? Unfortunately, she stumbles into a decades long unsolved murder, and people who will do anything to get the money back and to make sure that the truth remains buried, forever. I found Everything To Lose a compelling thriller that I honestly couldn’t put down. Yes, this particular type of story has been done before, but Mr. Gross adds just enough twists to keep it refreshing. Hilary is a flawed but sympathetic character and kept me wondering what I would do in her circumstances. The story is told from multiple points of view but it never gets confusing. I would highly recommend this to fans of mysteries, suspense, and thrillers.
