I shouldn't have come back to Miami . . . I've been escaping cops' notice for a year now. I'm no longer Michael Daye, high school athlete with a promising future. Now I look like someone whit no future.

When Michael saw a chance to leave town with a traveling carnival a year ago, he took it. Back then, his home life was spinning violently out of control. The carnival, with its "no questions asked" policy, seemed like a welcome escape. But now Michael's job has brought him back to Miami, where his mother is on trial for murder, making him wonder how much longer he can hide from his past . . . and his future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally AWESOME!!!!!!! This was the best book I have ever read. It goes between past and present back and forth until Michael aka Robert will come to closure with his terrible doing. This has so much suspence and I read it like right through the weekend with almost no breaks. I barely sleep. It was sooo awesome. Another awesome book is Lucas by Kevin Brooks or Brooke. It's kinda long but it is like sooooooooo awesome!

“Arresting. As she did in Breathing Underwater, Flinn does a masterful job of exploring domestic violence.”
