While driving along a suburban back road, Hilary Blum, who's just lost her job and whose deadbeat husband has left her alone to care for her son with Asperger's, witnesses a freakish accident. A car ahead of her careens down a hill and slams into a tree. Stopping to help, she discovers the driver dead--and a satchel stuffed with a half a million dollars. That money could prevent her family's ruin and keep her special needs son in school. In an instant, this honest, achieving woman who has always done the responsible thing makes a decision that puts her in the center of maelstrom of dark consequences and life-threatening recriminations--a terrifying scheme involving a twenty-year-old murder, an old woman whose life has been washed out to sea, and a powerful figure bent to keep the secret that can destroy him hidden. With everything to lose, everything she loves, Hilary connects to a determined cop from Staten Island, reeling from the disaster of Sandy, to bring down an enemy who will stop at nothing to keep what that money was meant to silence, still buried.

Everything to Lose by Andrew Gross has an insightful view regarding the heroine's son who has Asperger's. Few books that I have read even mention this form of autism.

An interesting scenario. Involves dirty politicians and the mob. Good plot.

Thought it was a good read. Could see someone doing that if in desparate circumstances.

Interesting premise but too many stupid people in the story. I didn't finish it.

Interesting question? How much is one person capable of going against their own moral conscience, when they are at the end of their rope and no help is forthcoming? What are we capable of doing? I thought it was a good read with a good pace.
