In "Peter Elroy," the household of a successful filmaker is visited years later by his famous first subject, whose trust he betrayed. In "The Lost & Found Department of Great Boston," the manager of a grocery store becomes fixated on the famous case of a missing local woman, and on the fate of the teenage son she left behind. And in the title story, a family makes a decision to flee to Paris for a summer, only to find their lives altered in an unimaginable way by their teenage daughter's risky behavior. -- From book jacket.
