At the high-octane Iowa Writers’ Workshop, small-town Charlotte is thrilled and confounded by her relationship with charismatic and sophisticated Esmé: One moment, Esmé appears to be Charlotte’s most intimate friend; the next, her rival. After a tumultuous weekend, Charlotte’s insecurities and her resentment toward Esmé reach a fever pitch. Blindly, Charlotte strikes out—in an act of betrayal that ultimately unleashes a cascade of calamities on her own head.
Twenty years later, Charlotte is a successful novelist. A much-changed Esmé appears, bringing the past that Charlotte grieved over, and believed buried, to the doorstep of Charlotte and her beloved husband. Charlotte finds herself both frightened and charmed. Though she yearns to redeem the old friendship and her transgression, she is wary—and rightly so.
As Good As Dead performs an exquisitely tuned psychological high-wire act as it explores the dangers that lie in wait when trust is poisoned by secrets and fears.

When Esme, the woman she betrayed twenty years ago, arrives on her doorstep, bringing with her a past she thought was buried forever, Charlotte is faced with a choice of redeeming the old friendship or give in to the fears of the past.
