Summary, etc.: "Gibby's older brothers have already been to war. One died there. The other came back a decorated killer now freshly released from a three-year stint in prison. Jason won't speak of the war or of his time behind bars, but he wants a relationship with the younger brother he hasn't known for years. He coaxes Gibby into a day at the lake with whisky and women. But when one of the women is savagely murdered, suspicion turns to Jason. Determined to proved Jason is innocent, Gibby must dive deep into his brother's hidden life. What he discover there is a truth more disturbing than he could have imagined--and why the most dangerous man alive wants Jason back in prison"--Page 4 of cover.

    *Starred Review* We know there's always at least two years between John Hart's novels (The Hush, 2018) so you'd think we'd have the sense to pace ourselves a little when we open a new one. But no. As little as 10 pages into The Unwilling, we're galloping forward in the same headlong way we always have. Like his previous six books, this one, set in the Vietnam War–era, is a family novel at its core, but circling out from that core are multiple, tightly wound and well-constructed plot threads, Just released from prison, Jason French—disgraced Vietnam veteran and heroin dealer—plans a day of hanging out with his younger brother, Gibby, who is about to graduate from high school. Events quickly spin out of control, and soon Jason is back in prison, this time for murder, and Gibby is determined to prove his brother's innocence. But beyond that premise is much more: the real story of what happened to Jason in Vietnam, Gibby's troubled coming-of-age under the overprotective thumbs of his parents, and, most of all, there is Prisoner X, the Hannibal Lecter–like genius manipulating the action from his jail cell. Yes, there are wildly disparate parts at play here, but Hart keeps us engaged with all of them, subtly folding quiet, character-driven moments into the story while still powering the narrative toward an all-stops-out ending—and a chilling coda. Remember to breathe after you turn the last page. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Another scorcher from Hart, whose first six novels all were New York Times best-sellers. He's been rolling sevens from the start, so it's no surprise that his seventh book comes up a winner, too. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
