Publisher's Summary

The Brightons are just an ordinary, small-town, law-abiding family. Until somebody else's mistake uncovers the truth - Jake and Carolyn Brighton are the FBI's two most wanted fugitives.
Jake and Carolyn have lived a lie for 14 years to protect themselves. But now they have to protect their 13-year-old son, Travis. Their only chance is to return to the hellish scene of an unprecedented crime, and collect the evidence that may finally set them free - if they can elude a massive manhunt long enough to get there.


What the Critics Say

"That Rare Beast: A superior page-turner that manages to pull at your heart." (David Baldacci)
"A flat-out, in-your-face thrill ride, filled with unexpected twists, sinister turns, clever plotting, and top-drawer writing. Gilstrap's characters are wonderfully sketched and his dialogue is rich with the language of real people. At All Costs demands to be read. At any price." (Lorenzo Carcaterra)
"Heart-pounding." (Tess Gerritsen)

I kept waiting for it to get better but, after five and a half hours, I could not take one more inane piece of dialogue. The female protagonist, for example, keeps exclaiming "Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!" as preposterous event after preposterous event happens to her family. Her lack of imagination actually fits her character. She and her husband are total idiots. Otherwise, how could they even BE in their current situation? As the publisher's summary explains, they are on the run. Fourteen years earlier, it turns out (this won't really affect your 'enjoyment' of this book; so many other things happen), they failed to report a crime (against them in part)...because they fell asleep (ASLEEP!!!!) out of exhaustion before remembering to call the police! The husband actually wakes up from his nap (NAP!!!) as he hears the police sirens with the uncomfortable feeling that there is something important he was s supposed to have done (no duh!!!!) they run, and are blamed for something that probably could have been cleared up in an hour. The narrator probably deserves three stars, not two...but I could not get over his intonation in some of the sentences--putting the emphasis in the entirely wrong word as if he was not even aware of what he was reading.
