'A great read, combining brutal action with a moving love story; gorgeous writing, too' Ian Rankin

'Exceptional' Stephen King

Winner of the 2018 Hammett Prize. A poignant and evocative crime novel - a story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities, and the hope of second chances.

Frank Guidry's luck has finally run out...

A loyal street lieutenant to New Orleans' mob boss Carlos Marcello, Guidry knows too much about the crime of the century: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Within hours of JFK's murder, everyone with ties to Marcello is turning up dead. Suspecting he's next, Guidry hits the road to Las Vegas. When he spots a beautiful housewife and her two young daughters stranded on the side of the road, he sees the perfect disguise to cover his tracks from the hit men on his trail.

The two strangers share the open road west - and find each other on the way. But Guidry's relentless hunters are closing in on him, and now he doesn't want to just survive, he wants to really live, maybe for the first time.

Everyone's expendable, or they should be, but Guidry just can't throw away the woman he's come to love. And it might get them both killed.

Genre: Historical Mystery

Praise for this book

"From its first frenetic pages to its wrenching final ones, Lou Berney takes us on the ride of a lifetime...It’s a crime story, a love story, a deeply American story. With November Road, Berney proves beyond doubt that he’s one of the most talented crime novelists working today." - Megan Abbott

"Lou Berney has quickly become one of crime fiction’s stand-outs, a quietly subversive writer who can surprise the most jaded readers. NOVEMBER ROAD delivers everything we have come to expect from him -- and then some." - Laura Lippman

"NOVEMBER ROAD is a thriller that defies categorization. A triumph of plot and prose and a brilliant depiction of the contradictions of 1960s America, the innocence, the violence, and the longing." - Ivy Pochoda

"November Road is a remarkable and unforgettable reading experience... You will recommend it to friends. You will read it again. Berney is a writer to be read and admired. This is a staggeringly brilliant book and a flat-out terrific read." - Don Winslow
