Book Description Videos


See all titles by Marcus Sakey.

The spectacular Dutton debut of a thriller writer whose ecstatically acclaimed work draws comparisons to luminaries such as Elmore Leonard, George Pelecanos, and Dennis Lehane.

An irresistible temptation.
A split-second choice.
A dangerous decision.

A family, and the security to enjoy it: thatís all Tom and Anna Reed ever wanted. But years of infertility treatments, including four failed attempts at in vitro fertilization, have left them with neither. The emotional and financial costs are straining their marriage and endangering their dreams.

Then one night everything changes. Offered a chance at a future they'd almost lost hope in, they seize it. One simple choice. A fairy tale ending.

But Tom and Anna soon realize that fairy tales never come cheap. Because their decision puts them square in the path of ruthless men. Men who've been double-crossed, and who wonít stop until they get revenge.

No matter where they find it.

"GOOD PEOPLE is gleefully dread-filled, mercilessly tense, and moves with the speed of something fired from a sawed-off. Based on his first three novels, one can't help but feel that Marcus Sakey is exactly the electric jolt American crime fiction needs." Dennis Lehane, bestselling author of MYSTIC RIVER and THE GIVEN DAY

"A killer of a book. If you could read it with one eye closed, you'd feel safer ó edge of the reader's seat stuff, and yet a wondrous streak of compassion tears your heart out. This is the novel that truly launches Sakey into the majors. Magnificent." Ken Bruen, Edgar-nominated author of PRIEST

"Masterful...having topped his previous two novels, Sakey may have trouble equaling this stellar performance." Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

"This is neither a simple nor a stereotypical thriller. The action is frenetic, the suspense high, and the results shocking. Highly recommended." Library Journal
