In Casebook, Miles Adler-Rich, helped by his friend Hector, spies and listens in on his separating parents. His mother is completely unaware of their snooping through her dresser drawers and computer diary that ultimately leads to questions about a stranger from Washington, D.C. who weaves in and out of their lives. This all starts out innocently enough, but ultimately leads to them acquiring information that brings the family heartbreak and sorrow. Once burdened with this powerful information, the boys struggle to deal with the existence of evil, and proceed to create an imaginative path to their own salvation.
In Off Course, Cressida Hartley, twenty-eight, a PhD candidate in economics, has moved to her parents' shabby A-frame in the Sierras, hoping to finish her dissertation about art in the marketplace. Though she came seeking solitude, she finds herself increasingly drawn into the life of the small mountain community she now calls home. Increasingly uninspired by her dissertation, Cress allows love, adultery, and obsession to commandeer her life, and soon she becomes the victim of her own perilous reasoning.
