Self-deprecating and menacing at the same time, and hilarious, but in a very subtle way.-Reviewer Drawing inspiration from actual headlines, Twenty-Six Miles traces the life of Billy Faulkner, a Vermont farmers son who struggles to find his place in the world.

Running from one scam to another, he sets out with his girlfriend, Molly Richardson, to start a new life on Nantucket. But the demons from his past wont leave him alone, and the elusive prospect of starting over seems doomed. But Billy has a plan to get back on course, if only Molly will be willing to go along with it. Its a risky idea, but if things go right, it might just be the perfect way to start over one more time.

In Twenty-Six Miles, author Andrew Spencer weaves a tale that blends his own personal knowledge of the islands culture and history together with events based on a real-life investigation. The result is an intriguing story of mystery and revenge, of fraud and double-crossing. A story in which nothing can be taken at face value. Andrew Spencer, the author of Bear Trap: The Fall of Bear Stearns and the Panic of 2008 and Tower of Thieves: Inside AIGs Corporate Culture of Greed has been a summer resident of Nantucket for forty-one years, including ten years spent living on the island year-round.

Today he lives with his wife Niki in Richmond, Virginia, and still enjoys spending summers on Nantucket.
