Year: 1978. ISBN: 039990025X. Luke Carr's wife and two children have been killed in a plane crash. Distraught, he has come from his home in Massachusetts to New York to take on a magazine assignment, running not only from his memories but from a series of anonymous letters which accuse him of the murder of his wife, and vow revenge. His assignment is the investigation of a disaster at a construction site, but when he interviews the widow of a worker killed in the accident, his memories return and he flees again, this time deep into the New Hampshire woods. There he begins to build a house, a place of isolation, a fragile fortress against the world.
