Summary, etc.:
From the Edgar Award-winning author of "A conspiracy of paper" comes an engaging and brilliantly constructed thriller set in and around a steamy Florida trailer park during the mid-1980s. In this darkly comic novel, David Liss skillfully interweaves a gallery of eccentric characters with a multilayered plot characterized by its unpredictable twists and turns, leaving readers in suspense until the very last page. While working as a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman as a means of paying for his college tuition, seventeen-year-old Lemuel Altick witnesses the double assassination of two clients to whom he's about to close a sale. Surprised by Lemuel's presence, the assassin forces Lemuel to become complicit in the murder--an event that instigates Lemuel's exposure to the previously hidden underworld surrounding him.
