Working for an Atlantic City newspaper, Owen Keane is intrigued by the unsolved murder of a prominent local family -- even more so when the sole survivor of the incident, a baby at the time, asks him to help answer the question: why was she spared?
With his talent for uncovering murky pasts, Owen, ex-seminarian turned seeker of lost souls, starts digging. But like many truths, the one he uncovers has been distorted by the human condition -- by altered identities and secret guilt.
Now, in confronting a killer, he must also face himself -- and the myriad fears locked in the hearts of those trying to prove the nameless... and understand themselves.
This paperback is in very good condition with a light reader's crease.
