"In 1983, Dustin Tillman's family--his parents and his aunt and uncle--were murdered in a shocking massacre. His foster brother, Rusty, was convicted of the crime, in a trial that was steeped in the "Satanic Cult" paranoia of the 1980s. Thirty years later, Rusty's conviction is overturned, and suddenly Dustin, now a psychologist, must question whether his testimony that imprisoned his brother was accurate. When one of his patients, an ex-cop, gets him deeply involved in a series of unsolved murders, Dustin's happy suburban life starts to unravel, as his uncertainties about his past and present life begin to merge"-- Provided by publisher.

O'Nan, Stewart, 1961- — The psychological fiction of Stewart O'Nan and Dan Chaon features ordinary characters who are faced with difficult challenges. Compelling, insightful stories reveal believable personalities with complex thoughts and dreams. Chaon's tales have more intricate plots and may be bleaker than O'Nan's, but both offer richly satisfying reads. -- Katherine Johnson
Lamb, Wally — Wally Lamb and Dan Chaon write compelling psychological novels that examine the darker elements of contemporary American life, including issues such as drug addiction, psychological and physical abuse, and mental illness. Their intricate plots permit rich character development. Chaon's writing may be bleaker, while Lamb's emphasizes the possibility of redemption. -- Katherine Johnson
