Readers and critics have been enchanted by Mary McGarry Morris's unforgettable characters and masterly use of suspense in her four earlier novels, including the bestselling Songs in Ordinary Time. In her latest tour de force, Gordon Loomis returns to a changed world after twenty-five years in prison. His old neighborhood is blighted by drug dealers; his brother is eager to help but is too caught up in his own life; his loyal friend Delores makes him realize that he's just as afraid of relationships as he is of going back to jail; and his inherent decency draws the attention of a hungry child whose survival threatens the fragile balance that is Gordon's freedom.Compelling and taut, suspenseful and compassionate, A Hole in the Universe will continue to resonate long after the last page is turned.On the web: http: //www.marymcgarrymorris.com

Review quote

?Few contemporary American writers can absorb readers so fully and with such immediacy... [as] the brilliant Mary McGarry Morris. ("Los Angeles Times") Richly atmospheric. bristling with dialogue, so tightened with suspense it threatens to snap? Morris is a master. ("The Washington Post")
