Book Description


Knopf: NY 2003 Advance reading copy, mint, new/unread in pictorial wraps.

After a lucrative television writing career comes to an abrupt end, exhigh school teacher Ray Mitchell returns to the New Jersey city of his birthto rethink his life, reconnect with his teenage daughter and to spread the wealth on the housing project that reared him. He begins teaching again, embarks on an affair with a married woman from the old neighborhood and becomes a mentor to a former student recently released from jail.Then, disaster: he is found beaten nearly to death in his own apartment. He knows who did it, but hes not talking, and he refuses to press charges.It is up to Detective Nerese Ammonsa childhood acquaintance from the projectsto get Ray to tell her what happened.Alternating between investigations of the people in Rays life most likely to do him harm and listening to his fevered ramblings about their shared past as he slips in and out of consciousness, Nerese is charged not only with uncovering the perpetrator of this assault but with understanding what kind of victim is more afraid of the truth than of his potential murderer.
