Things You Won't Say by Sarah Pekkanen

I have been a long-time fan of Sarah and her books, and this novel is being touted as her "best yet." That is great news for me because this book is coming out next month! There have been stories peppering the news on police shootings, and everything is being recorded and broadcast on the news for millions to see, evaluate, and judge. Do we really know what happens when the cameras stop rolling? Do we have a clue about the impact shootings have upon the officers and their families? I believe this book will be evocative and readers will have much to talk about when they've finished reading. 

Read this synopsis of the book: 
"How far would you go to save your family?

Every morning, as her husband Mike straps on his SIG Sauer and pulls on his heavy Magnum boots, Jamie Anderson tenses up. Then comes the call she has always dreaded: There’s been a shooting at police headquarters. Mike isn’t hurt, but his long-time partner is grievously injured. As weeks pass and her husband’s insomnia and disconnectedness mount, Jamie realizes he is an invisible casualty of the attack. Then the phone rings again. Another shooting—but this time Mike has pulled the trigger.

But the shooting does more than just alter Jamie’s world. It’s about to change everything for two other women. Christie Simmons, Mike’s flamboyant ex, sees the tragedy as an opportunity for a second chance with Mike. And Jamie’s younger sister, Lou, must face her own losses to help the big sister who raised her. As the press descends and public cries of police brutality swell, Jamie tries desperately to hold together her family, no matter what it takes."
