The Ruinous Sweep
author: Tim Wynne-Jones
On the night Donovan Turner is thrown from a car on a highway in the middle of nowhere, he can barely remember his own name, let alone the past twenty-four hours. With sirens in the distance and the lingering feeling that he’s running from something (or someone), Donovan flees. When the police show up and hint that Dono is the prime suspect in a murder, his girlfriend, Bee, is determined to piece together what happened and clear his name. With echoes of Dante’s Divine Comedy, this harrowing journey through hell and back is a page-turning tale of guilt, love, and redemption.
“Unsettling and powerful, Wynne-Jones’s work is intellectually and emotionally demanding and leads to a surprisingly strong catharsis.” — Shelf Awareness (starred review)
