Andrew Gross – Everything to Lose

What lines would your cross to save your family’s home? What laws would you break to help your child? Would you steal to pay your mortgage or to keep your child in a school that was helping him? Borrow illegal money to protect family? Try to destroy a man you know is a monster? Kill to protect a loved one? What would you do if you had everything to lose?

The book has an interesting plot and covers many moral ambiguities. Various characters become caught up in the immoral or illegal to protect what they have or whom they love.

I enjoyed the book but was unhappy with the ending. Questions were left unanswered. That’s not always a bad thing, to leave the reader thinking about the answers. But too many good people died. Maybe the author was trying to teach a lesson about crossing the lines.
