Summary

On a lake deep in Minnesota's north woods, John and Kathy Wade are trying to reassemble their lives. John, a rising political star, has just suffered a devastating electoral defeat. Kathy attempts to comfort her husband, but soon it becomes apparent that something is horribly wrong between them, that they have hidden too much from each other. Then one day Kathy vanishes. Their boat is gone - did she drown or is she lost? Or did she flee, disappearing into a new life? As a massive search gets under way, the possibilities multiply in terrifying directions. Uncovering the truth requires an investigation of Wade's life, and gradually we come to see that he is a sorcerer lost inside his own magic, a Houdini capable of escaping everything but the chains of his darkest secret.

The author of The Things They Carried offers a riveting novel of love and mystery. When long-hidden secrets about the atrocities he committed in Vietnam come to light, a candidate for the U.S. Senate retreats with his wife to a lakeside cabin in northern Minnesota. Within days of their arrival, his wife mysteriously vanishes into the watery wilderness.

The protagonist of this novel "is a politician whose promising career has been destroyed by the revelation of his misconduct in Vietnam.His wife, well aware that Vietnam torments his dreams, had known nothing of the {My Lai}murder and massacre underlying the nightmares.The husband is equally ignorant of her opinions on several important matters.When the two retreat to a cabin in the wilds of Minnesota to recover from the shock of a disastrous election, their partnership explodes."(Atl Mon)
