Baker & Taylor
After surviving being shot by a gunman who killed his wife, Arthur Cathcart has his sister--a doctor--declare him dead so that he can assume a new identity and track down his wife's killer.


New York Times critically acclaimed suspense writer, Chris Knopf, reaches a new imaginative peak in this outstanding revenge novel.

Imagine this: You have a nice life. You love your beautiful, successful wife. You're an easygoing guy working out of your comfortable Connecticut home. The world is an interesting, pleasant place.

Then in seconds it's all gone. You're still alive, but the world thinks you're dead. And now you have to decide. Make it official, or go after the evil that took it all away from you.

Arthur Cathcart, market researcher and occasional finder of missing persons, decides to live on a fight, by doing what he knows best - figuring things out, without revealing his status as a living breathing human being. Much easier said than done in a post- 9/11 world, where everything about yourself and all the tools you need to live a modern life are an open book. How do you become a different person, how do you finance an elaborate scheme without revealing yourself? How do you force a reckoning with the worst people on earth, as a dead man?

A good, cerebral read [although I didn't think the ending was justification for a cotinuation, that could just be me?]. Recommended.
