An injured woman stumbles into an inner-city hospital with a horrifying story: she has just been carjacked by a man who was apparently unaware that her son was asleep on the back seat. As a search ensues, a shrewd detective and an ambitious young reporter smell a hoax and begin to suspect that the woman is holding back a terrible truth: could she have murdered her own child?

'A hugely ambitious, searing novel ... Freedomland is a dazzling novel and makes for compulsive reading' Glasgow Herald 'A compelling portrait of America's flipside and a novel that obliges you (as Dickens did) to engage with it ... Not since Toni Morrison's Beloved have I read a new novel with such emotional force' Independent 'Taut and pulsating ... like Steve Bochco writing scripts for NYPD Blue, Price's work patrols the margins of the American underclass' Daily Express 'Richard Price has the soul of a poet, the ear of a screenwriter and the narrative ambition of a classic urban realist. His novels are sprawling, lyrical, down 'n' dirty accounts of those whom the American Dream has passed by' Arena
