Review

In September of 2011, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Debbie St. Germain was shot seven times by her fifth husband. Eight years later, son Justin tries to make sense of her life and death in this memoir. In bare, windswept prose that echoes the desert landscape where his mother died, he recounts his frustrating search for information about his mother's life and the crime that ended it, yet both remain something of an enigma. Though ultimately the book lacks answers, it does ask some important questions, among them why women are so often blamed for the violence perpetrated against them.
