Overview

"An assured, powerful novel that blends suspense and rich family drama...it is, in a word, unforgettable." --William Landay, author of DEFENDING JACOB

It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect.

Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world.

As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town - or perhaps lives among them - drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

From our buyer, Margaret Terwey: "Reese Witherspoon is making a movie of All is Not Forgotten, but there is no way a movie will capture the characters, the thought-provoking issues, or the suspense quite like reading the book. Plan to be riveted in place for a few hours because you won't be able to put this book down until the shocking conclusion."

The rape of 15-year-old Jenny Kramer in the well-to-do town of Fairview, Conn., propels this exceptional psychological thriller from Walker (Social Lives). The masked rapist wore a condom and was careful to leave no forensic evidence at the spot in the woods where he attacked Jenny after she wandered away from a party attended by nearly everyone in the 10th grade at Fairview High. Jenny’s parents, Charlotte and Tom, have vastly different reactions to this horrible assault on their daughter. Charlotte worries about her social standing, while Tom wants vengeance. When a doctor suggests a medication that will erase Jenny’s memory of the attack, Charlotte immediately agrees. As her parents grapple with their own emotional responses, they ignore Jenny’s pain. Alan Forrester, the family’s psychiatrist, provides the nonjudgmental, almost clinical narration. Forrester only wants to help the Kramers, but as Jenny’s treatment continues, he fears that the investigation will implicate someone close to him. While secret after secret about the residents of Fairview add to the suspense, Forrester’s secrets may be the most stunning of all. 250,000-copy first printing. Agent: Wendy Sherman, Wendy Sherman Associates Literary Management. (July)
