Andrew and Tony have studied hard and played by the rules. But the financial and jobs recession that began in 2008 has left them on the outside looking in: two young men with law degrees, mountains of student debt, and no jobs.

But the two friends are in for another unwelcome surprise, one that will again turn their lives upside down, involving them in violence, conspiracy, and a betrayal of the judicial system they've sworn to uphold.

Intelligently and engagingly written, Quiet Desperation takes its readers on a psychological tour through the interior lives of its characters; a tour that ends at an unexpected place. Quiet Desperation is an allegorical tale for our times, one in which responsibility is avoided, the innocent pay for the guilty, and few are who they seem to be.
