“Believable characters, an intricate plot, an absence of fluff, a thread of social justice, and the anticipation of more plot twists to come, All That Is Necessary will challenge you to keep up, and you’ll keep turning the pages to do just that.” — Phyllis Anne Duncan, author of Spy Flash, Blood Vengeance and Fences
The last time Dan Reilly saw his childhood best friend was when the State Police arrested Rick’s dad for trying to kill Dan and his uncle. After twenty years, Rick Murray has come back to Exeter and brought whispers of the past with him. As childhood memories run headlong into the reality of what happened that summer, both men must adjust to the idea that things weren’t as simple as they seemed back then.
All That Is Necessary explores the collision between past and present, between memory and reality, and between two former friends whose lives changed one summer.
