ABOUT THE BOOK
When a severed hand washes ashore in the wealthy enclave of Palm Beach, Florida, the lives of two women--a lonely writer obsessed with the unsolved murder of her mother's best friend and a panicked wife whose husband has disappeared with their children--collide as the world shutters in the pandemic lockdown of 2020.
"Reef Road is magnificent. It feels utterly real, a novel of deeply personal context. It swerves between truth and lies--the lies that lead to an even deeper--and more devastating--truth. Though pure fiction, it reads as compellingly as a mixture of memoir and exposé. It has left me shaken to the core. Deborah Goodrich Royce writes with brilliant understanding of the mystery and occasional grace of trauma." --Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author
