John Kennedy has just been assassinated and Frank Guidry was responsible for the killer’s getaway car. When plans go awry, the mobster he works for is out to get him, so Frank doesn’t squeal. Charlotte Roy is a young mother of two girls, living in a small town with an alcoholic husband. When she gets into her car with her daughters and the family dog and heads towards Los Angeles to escape her life in Oklahoma, she has no idea that she will meet Guidry who is running away from the thug hired to kill him.
November Road is a good, fast-paced read. Berney’s characters are believable and his plot is simple yet exciting. It is the perfect airplane book or vacation read.
