Desperate for inspiration, a writer revisits a long-forgotten crime
After nine books, three wives, and a massive advance for his as-yet-unwritten next novel, Sam Boyd has run out of ideas. He tries to write but his characters are dull, lifeless. So his thoughts turn to his hometown, and the tragedy he once encountered there. Boyd was fifteen when he found Pauline Ostrova floating in the Hudson River. The official verdict was murder, and the girl’s ex-boyfriend was convicted. But decades later, Boyd remains certain that the killer still lives in his bucolic Hudson town—and he’s determined to write his next book about what really happened. He has come home for inspiration, but the longer he stays, the more Boyd’s investigation spirals toward madness and a final, shocking conclusion. This ebook contains an all-new introduction by Jonathan Carroll, as well as an exclusive illustrated biography of the author including rare images from his personal collection.

For some reason this book popped into my head during the week and seeing it on the shelf this morning, realised I had to read it. (This is despite the huge pile of new books I've recently bought.) I've been reading Jonathan Carroll for a number of years and some of his novels I adore and some dont quite fit with me. This is one of the former. Exquisitely written in a wonderfully readable style. Essentially this is a murder mystery, a whodunit, yet somehow as you’d expect with Carroll, it never quite fits into that box.more
The most "mainstream" of all Carroll novels. A murder mystery told as only Carroll can tell it. Unique characters, interesting observations, and an appropriatley revealing climax. As with all Carroll novels the women are almost more interesting then the men. Good to see the start of Frannie.more
