It's said that books can't be judged by covers, and the characters in Cathi Stoler's "Keeping Secrets" are all more than they seem. And in New York, a city fast and grand enough for anyone to reinvent themselves, it seems identity theft is epidemic. Stoler knows Manhattan and, in this, her second novel, she has her characters, who live and love on that improbable island, well in hand. Those secrets will out. —David Simon, Creator and Executive Producer of "Treme" and "The Wire"
