In HE STARTED IT (Berkley, July 28 2020), Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan are together again after years of being apart, but this is no happy reunion. Their wealthy grandfather has died, leaving behind an enormous inheritance and a cryptic final message: in order to secure their cut of the money, the siblings must reunite for a cross-country road trip. They must stick to the itinerary of the trip they once took as children with their grandfather—no exceptions. Anyone who ends up in jail along the way or doesn’t complete the journey will lose their inheritance.
“Wholly original. Scarily clever. Completely mesmerizing. You will never look at family road trips the same way again.”
—Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Time with family can be tough. But criss-crossing the creepiest of Americana sites (a barbed wire museum; the bloodied recreation of Bonnie and Clyde shot to death; a UFO watchtower) is the least of what’s keeping these siblings up at night. For starters, there’s a man in a black truck who won’t stop following them. The urn with their grandfather’s ashes keeps vanishing and reappearing. And, oh yeah, one of them may very well be a killer.
With a page-turning story starring a gang of unsavory characters and a never-would’ve–guessed-it ending, this is THE summer book to binge.
