Summary (From the publisher):

Alone and haunted by memories of his dead wife and child, Jack returns to upstate New York from the Carolina coast where he has been working as a security guard. A New York lawyer hires him to find her missing nephew, last seen in the area of Jack's northern hometown. His search gradually uncovers a dark underside of rural life and a cast of dangerous characters. Jack is besieged by memories as he uncovers a brutal crime and finds himself in a turbulent relationship with a treacherous woman. In trying to save another's life, Jack must relive his own. Memory, obsession, and reality fuse, and Jack discovers the truth of Faulkner's observation that "the past is not really past; it's not even over."
