In the animal kingdom, fathers sometimes eat their children, much to the chagrin of the mothers. When Sam and Delta Harper, who run a small-town newspaper, suffer the return of Peter, their bug-up-the-ass son from college, eating him isn't really an option. But the triangle of mom-in-the-middle between father and son is a tenuous one. To make matters worse, Sam discovers he has a tumor behind his eye and assumes he is going to die. Delta, his Christian Scientist wife, believes its all in his head, figuratively, not literally. When Peter declares at the dinner table that he wants to be a lawyer, a corporate lawyer, no less, Sam and Delta wonder where they went wrong. Strangely, it is Peter who ultimately creates a life-threatening show-down between himself and his father in the skies above Carver's Mill. CROSSBOW BOOKS: "A GREAT read! Delicious spot-on dialogue. Harvey has the ability to pepper bittersweet scenes with humor, then turn around and clobber you while you're laughing."
