Frank Smith, famed writer of murder mysteries, boards a Southwest Airlines flight at Phoenix heading to Baltimore to attend his fiftieth class reunion at Scott Academy. Behind him he leaves the highly mysterious disappearance of his wife four years before, as well as the relentless quest of Officer Ledezma, who suspects that Smith killed his wife and buried the body. Another mystery awaits Frank at Scott Academy-a mystery from twenty-five years ago, when a group of young boys walked from the campus into the woods and disappeared. What could have happened to them? Who better than he to probe the mystery? When he does so, he relives not only his own boyhood when his father was the upright head of the academy's English department but also that of the classmates of the missing boys, some of whom have returned to Scott Academy for their twenty-fifth reunion. In a story warm yet suspenseful, amidst a floodtide of emotions and rich characterizations, Frederick Ramsay explores the role of impulse on many levels.

"Mystery writer Meredith Smith gets more than he bargains for on a trip from his Arizona home to a school reunion in Baltimore. The 60-something Smith has to deal with past demons and present-day challenges. Narrator R.C. Bray gives equal attention to major and minor characters. He especially shines with the protagonist, who receives a kind, slightly scratchy voice. Ramsay's well-paced story treats senior citizens with dignity, and Bray pays attention to every detail along Smith's journey. As Smith tries to crack a case involving missing boys, Bray never misses a step in his array of voices--from that of a drunken, burned-out college alum to Smith's angry daughter. M.B.
