When Sam has heart attack and the woman Roy has been dating dies, Kristin takes Roy to lunch to comfort him and to ask him to stop lending Sam money. Roy suddenly finds Kristin desirable and sets in motion an affair with his best friend's wife. Thomas Berger's latest novel tackles the themes of friendship, love, loyalty, and relationships.
