I can't get enough of Jess Walter. I read The Beautiful Ruins and We Live in Water and enjoyed them both so I thought I'd give some of his earlier stuff a try. This one is like one of the stories from We Live in Water only expanded. I was not impressed that the previous reviewer spoiled the ending. I would recommend it.

Vince Camden makes donuts and forges credit cards, but gets away with it because he has a lawyer friend and is in the witness protection program. That is, until a familiar face shows up in town and he must spend a week on the run from Spokane to New York. I liked the way Vince sees politics and voting rights as a way to redemption. I also liked the ending of the book where Vince turns himself in to finally get a real second chance to be who he says he is. I didn't find it compelling, and I put the book down for days at a time.
