"A relentless work full of white heat and dark possibility." - BOSTON GLOBE When long-hidden secrets about his past come to light, John Wade - a Vietnam veteran and recent candidate for the U.S. Senate - retreats with his wife, Kathy, to a lakeside cabin in northern Minnesota. Within days of their arrival,Kathy mysteriously vanishes into the watery wilderness. As a search is begun, several explanations, all of them disturbing, rise to the surface in this unforgettable story about the vagaries of memory, love, and deception. "A gut-punch of a novel . . . O'Brien turns the thriller form inside out."-SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER "A memorable mystery story charged with haunting ambiguity . . . If any American novelist is creating more beautifully written, emotionally harrowing tales than Tim O'Brien, I don't know who it could be." - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY "Serious, gracefully written, and at the same time, as gripping as a thriller."-WALL STREET JOURNAL

"A book punctuated with footnotes, interview snippets, and sprinklings of "evidence" may not seem at first like a good audio candidate. However, L.J. Ganser's rendition of this novel doesn't attempt to evade its complexity. When John Wade's political life implodes after the revelation of his role in Vietnam War atrocities, he and his wife seek solitude in the woods. Kathy's subsequent disappearance provides the backdrop for a thorough examination of Wade's life--from his early longing for his father's love to his obsession with Kathy, from magic tricks to massacres. Ganser seldom misses a beat, even with frequent refrains and unusual authorial choices. The novel raises more questions than it answers, but the questions are good ones. L.B.F.
