There has never been a character quite like Romulus Ledbetter, the unlikely hero of George Dawes Green's acclaimed debut novel, "TheCaveman's Valentine." Once a devoted family man and a Julliard-trained musician with abrilliant future, Rom now makes his home in a cave in New York City's Inwood Park, spending his days foraging for food and waging a one-manwar against Cornelius Gould Stuyvesant, the evil (and imaginary)powerbroker responsible for every one of society's ills. Then, onewintry night, Rom finds a corpse at the mouth of his cave. Propelled by his well-defined sense of ethics, he sets off on an obsessive quest foranswers, following a spiraling web of clues and hunches, straight into the sinister den of temptation, money, and murder... a place otherwiseknown as the "civilized" world.
