Life Among Giants

Bill Roorbach

Part mystery, part coming-of-age tale, Roorbach's (The Smallest Color, 2001) latest novel traces the fortunes of NFL-bound David "Lizard" Hochmeyer and his sister Kate, a tennis star. As a teenager, David witnesses his parents' shooting deaths at a restaurant in their Connecticut hometown. Over the decades that follow, Lizard and Kate are obsessed with uncovering the motives behind the deaths. Will they ever uncover the truth? A wildly entertaining novel of murder, seduction, and revenge.
