"At the close of the previous Darby novel, Live Free or Die, the infant son of Freddy Elman was at the breast of his dying mother, Lilith Salmon, on the ledges of the Salmon Trust in Darby. As Spoonwood opens, Freddy, consumed by grief and anger and struggling with alcoholism, is not prepared to be a father to Birch. But as both his family and Lilith's begin to maneuver for custody of the child, Freddy embarks on a course of action that satisfies none of them."--
