Description

Anna Miller wants only one thing, her son, and she will do anything to keep him. When a district court awards custody of Oliver to his father, she abducts the five year old and flees to Italy where with her family’s help they disappear into the fabric of her native homeland.

In A Lovely, Indecent Departure, the riveting and emotionally-charged debut from Steven Lee Gilbert, a promising new voice in literary thrillers, comes the captivating story of a mother’s love and desperation set amidst the heart wrenching landscape of an international parental abduction. Told in prose that is both stripped-down and overpowering, Gilbert shapes the everyday conflict of child custody into a stunning search for sense of worth. Standing in the young mother’s way is Evan Meade, the boy’s guileful and mean-spirited father, who hires a child recovery specialist when the efforts of the embattled local sheriff, Monroe Rossi, fail to track them down. But as the investigation draws them all closer to Anna, Evan’s true nature betrays itself and the question of what’s in the child’s best interest becomes not so clear anymore.

Objectively detailed, in a voice that refuses to intrude on the minds of its characters, A Lovely, Indecent Departure, captures in stark detail a world in which modern archetypes are turned upside down and shows what an extraordinary splash Steven Lee Gilbert has made with his first novel.
