Before You Know Kindness by Chris Bohjalian

By Chris Bohjalian

On a balmy July evening in New Hampshire a shot earrings out in a backyard, and a guy falls to the floor, extraordinarily wounded. The wounded guy is Spencer McCullough, the shot that hit him used to be fired--accidentally?--by his adolescent daughter Charlotte. With this shattering second of violence, Chris Bohjalian launches the simplest type of literate page-turner: suspenseful, wryly humorous, and humane.
