Trip Through Your Wires: a novel by Sarah Layden

Her boyfriend Ben’s murder left Carey inert for seven years. Now, a clue draws her back into the mystery that led to his death, forcing her to re-examine her own culpability and the self-delusion that blinded her to the dangers of his world. As she follows the clues and searches her memory, searing loss and guilt take over her life.

"In this haunting first novel, Sarah Layden constructs a machine of longing, capturing the minute maze of memory. Trip Through Your Wires is a patient, powerful, and profound emotional unraveling."
—Michael Martone, author of Four for a Quarter

"Trip Through Your Wires is compulsively readable." —Porter Shreve, author of The End of the Book
