Book Summary

“I devoured Finding Jake. The tension is almost unbearable in this thriller-cum-character study as layer after layer of a father’s soul are revealed as reflected in the character of his missing son. Utterly engrossing.”—Alice LaPlante, New York Times bestselling author of Circle of Wives and Turn of Mind

Simon Connolly’s successful wife has gone to her law office each day, while he has stayed home to raise their children—Jake and Laney. He has tried to do the best for the kids. For sunny, outgoing Laney, it’s been easy. But Jake is different. He has always been on the quiet side, preferring the company of his small group of friends to popularity and organized sports. Now that his children are in high school, Simon should be able to relax, to worry less. He’s never given that chance.

On a warm November day, he receives a text: There has been a shooting at the high school.

Racing to the rendezvous point, Simon is forced to wait with scores of other anxious parents as one by one, they are reunited with their children. Their numbers dwindle, eventually leaving Simon alone. That is when he learns that Jake is the only child missing.

As his worst nightmare unfolds, Simon’s thoughts race. Where is Jake? What happened in those final moments? Jake could not have done this—or could he? Did Simon miss the signs? As rumors begin to ricochet, amplified by an invasive media and the fear swallowing their community, Simon must find answers.

But there is only one way to understand what has happened . . . he must find Jake.

“Harrowing.” —New York Times Book Review

  • Perfect

    By 14shadesofgray
    This was such a perfect but haunting story! The characters are so captivating and each line pulled at my heart wanting more. It's the true definition of "never judge a book by its cover"! Love this book times a million! Highly recommend. Although it is about a touchy subject (school shooting), it gives such a different perspective.... One that needs to be found individually. I can't quite explain how it made me emotionally feel. But I'm glad I read it!

    Well written page-turner that kept me up all night --- until the tense filled resolution of the environment of a school shooting and its impact on families is resolved. Thought provoking.

    I love Bryan Reardon's writing style. From the first page, I was hooked and could not put the book down. Although I was extremely curious(and skeptical) to find out how an authour could convincingly write a book about this subject without actually having the life experience Reardon accomplished it with amazing success.

  • This book was amazing!

    When I started reading "Finding Jake", I expected that Jake would turn out to be the bad guy. Instead, a story unraveled of a warm and loving young man who made the intimate sacrifice. It also was intertwined with glimpses into a family that was both relatable and unique. Jodi Picoult is my favorite author, and the way this story is told echoes her style. I may have just found my second favorite author!

    I felt all the emotions the author was trying to get across. It is a book that will stay with me for some time. Although heartbreaking, it does end on a happier note.
