It All Seemed So Simple...

Two brothers and their friend stumble upon the wreckage of a plane—the pilot is dead and his duffle bag contains four million dollars in cash. The men agree to hide, keep and share the fortune. But what started off as a simple plan slowly devolves into a gruesome nightmare none of them can control.

Review: A Simple Plan

User Review  - Christine - Goodreads

I liked the thought-provoking premise of the book, but as it progressed, it became very unreal. Ending leaves you sad and unfulfilled. Just rented the movie, they did a good job capturing the feeling of the book. Read full review

User Review  - Loretta Gaffney - Goodreads

I know this is kind of a guilty pleasure read, but I'm still giving it 5 stars because it is perfectly plotted. And by perfectly, I mean PERFECTLY. Smith even sticks the landing. Read full review
