About the Book
A cryptic message found in a bookstore. A past full of heartache and loss. The revival of questions stemming from the long-ago disappearance of a friend. These elements combine with political conspiracies and perplexing riddles as Jordan Dunleavy sifts through his memories to uncover the answers to mysteries previously concealed.
After the death of his beloved wife, Lucy, Jordan is haunted by the nagging feeling that ghosts from the past are never truly buried.
Now, from his California ranch to a bookstore in Paris, Jordan’s journey sets him on a path toward unearthing past secrets—those his deceased wife kept from him for forty years and those surrounding the fate of his best friend, whose vanishing while on the hippie trail in 1970s Europe and Asia may not be quite what it seemed.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth, Jordan’s stepdaughter, is struggling with her own concerns. Her husband has been absent for six months, and she assumes he’s simply moved on with his life and studying music in Vienna. His mysterious connection with that city and the little she knows about his upbringing only lead her to further questions—which eventually connect her present problems with her own father’s past.
