Fred Leebron. Six Figures. New York: Knopf, 2000.

Warner Lutz and his young family have just moved to booming, affluent Charlotte, N.C., but they have yet to benefit from the largesse around them. Walter’s job is unsatisfying and he often takes out his frustrations on his family. When his wife is attacked by an unidentified assailant, Walter becomes a suspect in the crime. Six Figures is a compelling portrait of twenty-first century isolation and evidence that even in a bustling New South city, not everyone is thriving.
