Reef Road (MP3 CD)

Reef Road By Deborah Goodrich Royce, Saskia Maarleveld (Read by) Cover Image


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.

A young woman's life seems perfect until her family goes missing. A writer lives alone with her dog and collects arcane murder statistics. What each of them stands to lose as they sneak around the do-not-enter tape blocking Reef Road beach is exposed by the steady tightening of the cincture encircling them.

In a nod to the true crime that inspired it, Deborah Goodrich Royce's Reef Road probes unhealed generational scars in a wrenching and original work of fiction. It is both stunning and sexy and, like a bystander surprised by a curtain left open, you won't be able to look away.
