The Last Summer of the Camperdowns

400 pages; Liveright
In The Last Summer of the Camperdowns, by Elizabeth Kelly, Riddle is the privileged only daughter of a politician and an icy, self-centered former actress—parents who never put her first. The plot unfolds like the Cape Cod season itself—beginning lazily, languidly, before heating up and morphing into a fast-paced thriller.
