Randy Chalmers has to admit he’d be dead or in prison were it not for Terry Elias. Thanks to Terry’s coaching and an endless stream of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, Randy’s been off the booze for eight years, has a successful new career, and is thriving in a healthy relationship. All is well…until Terry is found dead of a heroin overdose. Convinced that something (or someone) must have pushed him, Randy is soon off on a quest for answers. When his suspicions ultimately connect Terry’s death to the activities of a recently appointed court judge, Randy has to ask himself: Is he really onto something, or just suffering from grief and paranoia?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[An] engaging debut…[Contains] a healthy amount of verve and black comedy…succeeds on the emotional and physical muscle of its narrator.” Kirkus Reviews
“Dan Barden's new novel, The Next Right Thing, is a rare beast: a detective story where the central mystery turns out not to be the most important thing going on. Incidentally, and perhaps even rarer, it's also a detective story that makes you wonder if you ought to take up construction and interior design.” The Atlantic
“[R]ings true…As I put the book down, I wondered whether Barden had a friend whose death inspired those [final] haunting paragraphs. It feels that real.” Washington Post, editorial review
“Everything you could hope for from a novel: The Next Right Thing is suspenseful, hilarious, angry—above all, wildly original. I only wish I’d written it myself.” Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad
