How far would you go for love?
As 24-year-old Nicole Hewett mourns at her father’s grave, she worries about her mother, badly injured in the car accident that killed him, and whether they’ll be able to make ends meet. Then she sees her beloved childhood friend, Honey, standing beside her old Cadillac. As Honey approaches, Nicole realizes how numb she’s felt ever since Honey fled their hometown without explanation six years earlier. Before long, Nicole’s old fascination with Honey is reignited, along with a new desire for her wild, charismatic friend. But the prodigal has returned bearing secrets and troubles, and when Honey disappears again Nicole must decide: Is her lover in peril? Or is she the peril?
Honey is a thrilling modern noir novel with a classic refrain: nothing is more dangerous than love.

“Honey shows that the classic noir fatalism you see in writers like David Goodis makes a lot of sense in a contemporary setting as well. With well-drawn characters and Brooks's ability to tease out an obsessiveness that leads to some truly bad decision-making, this is an impactful, spare read.” — Nathan Ripley, author of Find You in the Dark and Your Life Is Mine
