Description

In this all-consuming, suspenseful story, a stay-at-home father with something to prove finds a wealthy Wall Street investor's body washed up on the shore—and decides to take the investigation into his own hands: "smart, clever, and has something to say" (Michael Connelly​).
 
Peter Greene spends his days taking care of his toddler, Luke; staying on the right side of The Moms in his local beach town; and hanging out with his surf buddy, Frank. Isolated from his former life in finance, and frustrated by his current “out of work” existence, he worries that if he sits around the house for much longer, his workaholic wife might start to lose patience with him. He has few escapes aside from surfing and the love he has for his son.

But when the body of wealthy Wall Street investor Robert Townsend washes up on shore one morning, nothing about the incident makes sense to Pete, and he’s completely bewildered when the death is ruled an accidental drowning.  But when he takes his concerns to the police, they ignore him—so he decides to investigate on his own. Sustained only by the unquestioning devotion of his three-year-old sidekick, Pete starts looking into Townsend’s eccentric relatives and employer, the ruthless and secretive private equity firm GDR. But has Pete deluded himself with this misguided quest for redemption? Or has he uncovered something sinister enough to risk his life, and even his family?

A Rough Way to Go is a raw, irreverent story that plumbs the depths of masculinity, unemployment, fatherhood, marriage, and modern capitalism—and the struggle to live a purpose driven life.

Advance Praise

"With a stay-at-home dad as the unlikely hero of the tale, Sam Garonzik puts an engaging twist on the domestic thriller. His debut, A Rough Way To Go, is a compelling read from a fresh new voice."

 –Nancy Allen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Payback

"What Mick Herron did for the spy thriller, Sam Garonzik does for the mystery novel: The protagonist of A Rough Way To Go draws you in with his darkly comic delivery, while the whip-smart plot keeps you turning the pages to speed toward the satisfyingly unpredictable ending."  

 –Alexandra Andrews, author of Who Is Maud Dixon?

“Who hasn't wanted to drop out of their stressful life to start over in a laid-back beach town? For Peter, it turns out to be more of a mixed bag, and a dead body washing up on the shore doesn't make things any easier. A wry, pitch-black comedy crackling with tension, A Rough Way To Go doesn't pull punches and holds nothing back. Sam Garonzik's observations are so on point that you'll feel seen in the best (worst?) possible way . . . Will alternately make you gasp, laugh, and nod in agreement.”

 –Nina Laurin, author of Girl Last Seen

"With a stay-at-home dad as the unlikely hero of the tale, Sam Garonzik puts an engaging twist on the domestic thriller. His debut, A Rough Way To Go, is a compelling read from a fresh new voice."
