Seventeen-year-old Joshua Jackson is the son of divorced parents. His life in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is nothing out of the ordinary. Until the night that he accidentally kills someone with his car - and pretends that nothing ever happened. But there was a witness who has left a loose end at the scene of the crime, and when Joshua goes back to clean up, his car is stolen - with the dead body in the trunk. With nowhere to turn, he tells his mother everything. When she reluctantly agrees to help him, they'll both become ensnared in a series of events that will trap him and his family in a web of criminality and deceit. Nothing is safe from harm, and with every decision they're forced to make, Joshua and his family are pulled further away from the normal Midwestern life they've always known. The night hides a multitude of sins and sinners - ones that they'll never see coming.… (mer)

Joshua Mayo is a high school senior. 18 years old. Waiting for his acceptance letter to Clemson. He has his whole life ahead of him. Until a hit and run accident. Until he kills a man. Until he runs from the scene of the accident. Until his parents cover it up. Until......

One Fatal Mistake.

Wow...this book is one crazy ride! Vehicular homicide...then a cover up....and add in bank robbers on the run. Geez....the action and suspense never stopped. I loved the story line....it kept me reading. Total binge read. But....the characters....oh my....I hated them all. The Mayo family doesn't see anything wrong with covering up the death of an innocent person. Lie after lie after lie....because their kid's future is worth more than someone else's life, right? Major S-heads. And the bank robbers....well they are are completely screwed up too. And the universe is just F'd up enough to make them all meet in the middle. It makes for an awesome thriller....with the little voice in my head commenting about how horrid every single person in the story is. Every. Single. Person. Completely horrid. But insanely perfect for this story.

I love my kids. I would do just about anything for my kids. But.....I would NOT cover up a murder, hide bodies or lie to the police for my kids. Or anybody. No, no, no, no....and after that....NO. But....I will totally binge read an entire book in one afternoon that is about parents who will do just that....and more. Great story....twisted and traumatizing....but a great story. Any book that makes me totally binge read for an entire afternoon deserves full stars from me!

Well-written. Suspenseful. Twisted. Loved it! This book kept my attention from beginning to end. I'm definitely going to read more by this author. Tom Hunt has written one other book -- Killer Choice -- about a man so desperate for money to help his ill wife that he's willing to commit murder-for-hire to get it. Oh my.....another story with completely F'd up characters. I have to read it!!!!! So twisted! Book insta-added to my TBR list!

I was very intrigued by the synopsis of this book and even more intrigued when I found out some of it involves Nebraska! (Which is where I live!) This book was so enrapturing with all the action going on! It was a pretty quick read also. Not much to say, in order to not give any spoilers.
This was a really good story but I must admit I was a little let down at the end. It seemed so action packed and then the end was kind of blah. I would still recommend it though!

I received a copy of this galley courtesy of the First To Read program in exchange for my honest review. ( )

One Fatal Mistake by Tom Hunt is a 2019 Berkley publication.

Tense, fast paced and compulsively readable-

Eighteen- year old Joshua Mayo is involved in a hit and run accident and is hoping to keep it covered up, especially from his mother, Karen. But, as mothers often do, Karen eventually learns the truth.

Meanwhile, a bank robbery goes horribly awry. The robbers, Ross and Amber, a married couple, fleeing with their booty, experience car trouble.

Inexplicably, Josh and Karen and Ross and Amber’s lives collide forcing Karen to do the unthinkable to save her son’s life.

There is never a dull moment in this emotional, high-octane thriller. It was very easy to get sucked into the saga, especially between Karen and her son. The story feels a little like a cautionary tale, although the main theme throughout is that of familial bonds and the lengths one might go to in order to save someone they love.

It is curious how we all set bars at different heights when it comes plausibility limits. I’m one who firmly believes that fiction should be given the benefit of the doubt, and that is especially true with thrillers. In this case, however, I felt I had to overlook a few too many improbabilities. Sometimes it was the dialogue I took issue with, and of course some of the scenarios and rationalizations didn’t seem realistic or make much sense to me.

Maybe try burning something that is not food on a grill, then putting hot items in a plastic trash bag- for example. What mother of an eighteen- year old son doesn’t know what PS4 stands for? And that ridiculous explanation Josh gave Karen for the damage to his car. Nope- that wouldn't have flown with me- at all.

Stupid little things like that got on my nerves a little bit. But, maybe I’m just being ticky-tacky today.

Despite that, the book is an edge of your seat thrill ride. Not only that, there is a somber, emotional edge to it, especially at the conclusion. No soft sell or slaps on the wrist. Still, I rooted for the characters, hoping that everything would work out for the best.

The author did a great job with putting the characters in situations that force the reader to consider how they might react under the same set of circumstances. That question is at the heart of the story more than anything else.

So, overall, this is a fast and easy read, and even though I balked at a few absurdities on several occasions, this is still a solid, entertaining crime drama.

3.5 stars rounded down ( )

What an adventure! This book starts out with a bang, creeps into more bangs, and more bangs, and different bangs, and then etc., etc., etc. until it ends with....yep.

I liked the characters in that they were true to who they were meant to be. In other words, I absolutely adored some of them and others I wanted to stomp on. A lot. They were real to me as I read, and parts of this story are really emotional as well as scary as hell. It's hard to hold your breath and turn a page at the same time, but I did that a lot in this book. Some things that happened I could have predicted, but certainly not all, and not at any point.

A genuine good read. An adventure, a roller coaster, a nail biter.....but so good. Make sure you're prepared to read awhile when you start it, because you'll want to keep on going!

My thanks to Penguin Random House/ Berkley Pub. for my copy of this book! ( )
