A Best Book of the the Year:

In a small town in Virginia, a group of strangers comes together at a special treatment center, where they enter the Miracle Submarine, an experimental chamber that may cure a range of conditions—from infertility to autism. Then the chamber explodes and two people die. Who is responsible? Was it the exhausted mother of a patient? The owners, hoping to cash in on a big insurance payment and send their daughter to college? Could it have been a protester, trying to prove the treatment isn’t safe? An ensuing murder trial uncovers unimaginable secrets and lies.
Drawing on the author’s own experiences—as a former trial lawyer, Korean American immigrant, and mother of a “submarine” patient—Miracle Creek pieces together the tense atmosphere of a courtroom drama and the complexities of family life. It’s a powerful debut from an unforgettable new voice.
