The Best of Crimes Summary

The Best of Crimes by K C Maher

Walter, a child prodigy who now works on Wall Street, considers himself a father figure to Amanda, his daughter's best friend and only child of a neglectful single mother. But when he loses his job after the 2008 financial crisis and his materialistic wife leaves him, taking their daughter, his relationship with Amanda enters a precarious new stage. Walter struggles to give her the affection and guidance she needs, without succumbing to her budding sexuality. In the year before she enters high school, these two lonely souls will transform each other as Walter breaks out of his emotional shell, and Amanda blossoms into adolescence. In a world that has always failed to protect its most vulnerable, The Best of Crimes is a new narrative and an unconventional love story that will challenge your perception of right and wrong.

About K C Maher

K.C. Maher grew up outside of Chicago and has been writing fiction all her adult life. Her writing has appeared in little magazines online and off. Mostly, though, her career has been a series of near misses. Only recently has she noticed that her imagination runs to, and cultivates, the exception to the rule. Her husband, however, has always known this, as have lawyers considering her for jury duty.
