Where is it?
Summary
Bestselling and award-winning author Lisa Scottoline reaches new heights with this riveting novel about how a single decision can undo a family, how our past can derail our present, and how not guilty doesn't always mean innocent.

Allie Garvey is heading home to the funeral of a childhood friend. Allie is not only grief-stricken, she's full of dread. Because going home means seeing the other two people with whom she shares an unbearable secret.

Twenty years earlier, a horrific incident shattered the lives of five teenagers, including Allie. Drinking and partying in the woods, they played a dangerous prank that went tragically wrong, turning deadly. The teenagers kept what happened a secret, believing that getting caught would be the worst thing that could happen. But time has taught Allie otherwise. Not getting caught was far worse.

Allie has been haunted for two decades by what she and the others did, and by the fact that she never told a soul. The dark secret has eaten away at her, distancing her from everyone she loves, including her husband. Because she wasn't punished by the law, Allie has punished herself, and it's a life sentence.

Now, Allie stands on the precipice of losing everything. She's ready for a reckoning, determined to learn how the prank went so horribly wrong. She digs to unearth the truth, but reaches a shocking conclusion that she never saw coming--and neither will the reader.

A deeply emotional examination of family, marriage, and the true nature of justice, Someone Knows is Lisa Scottoline's most powerful novel to date. Startling, page-turning, and with an ending that's impossible to forget, this is a tour de force by a beloved author at the top of her game.

Booklist Review
Scottoline's latest stand-alone domestic drama centers on three people who share a deadly past. In the present, Allie Garvey lies to her husband about returning to her suburban Philadelphia hometown to attend the funeral of her first crush. Also present are former popular rich kids Sasha and Julian. The narrative quickly heads back to the summer of 1999, when the three high-schoolers formed an unlikely group, along with friends Kyle and David. Each teen has his or her own personal secrets: Allie's mom has been in a deep depression since Allie's sister died from cystic fibrosis the year before; Sasha's jet-setting parents leave her at home alone for weeks at a time; new-kid Kyle and his mom have run away from the terrible crimes his father committed in their hometown. But nothing compares to the secret they will carry with them for the next 20 years: Who was responsible for the bullet in the gun during their drunken game of Russian roulette? Scottoline fills the pages with twists and turns and plenty of skeletons in family closets. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Best-selling Scottoline has many fans, and they will race to the end of her latest.--Rebecca Vnuk Copyright 2010 Booklist
