They couldn't have been more different then, or even today—Lincoln's a commercial real estate broker, Teddy a tiny-press publisher, and Mickey is a musician beyond his rockin' age. But each man holds his own secrets, in addition to the monumental mystery that none of them has ever stopped puzzling over since a Memorial Day weekend right here on the Vineyard in 1971. Now, forty-five years later, three lives and that of a significant other are put on displaywhile the distant past confounds the present ina relentless squall of surprise and discovery. Shot through with Russo's trademark comedy and humanity, Chances Are . . . introduces a new level of suspense and menace that will quicken the reader's heartbeat throughout this absorbing saga.

- Chances Are4 star

One of the most boring books I’ve ever read.

- Dividing the Book in Half3 star

I’d give the first half of the book 4 stars, but the second half 2 stars. Way too much exposition and repetition.

Thank you, Mr. Russo.

Excellent.

- Chances Are3 star

This one by Richard Russo felt way too contrived. The characters were stereotypical. I found the unnecessary and frequent, one-way political jabs annoying. Russo seems preachy here. Not worth the price.
