Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a heady cocktail of sex, drugs, and murder, gifted storyteller Denis Hamill serves up another gripping whodunit, about a man who must confront his hippie past in order to save his future. Denis Hamill's streetwise novels rack up praise the way some thrillers rack up dead bodies. With Long Time Gone, he unleashes another "entertaining who dunit with some poignant observations about life, love, and loss" (Publishers Weekly). 1969: Anti-war protesters fill the streets, Woodstock becomes the touchstone of a generation, and teenager Danny Cassidy sees his life shattered in a purple haze of drugs and violence. Did he kill the father of Erika, the girl of his dreams? Or was he framed to cover up a far darker crime? Cut to the present: Danny, now a forty-nine-year-old journalist, returns to his old Brooklyn neighborhood for his father's funeral, and one last chance to reclaim the love of his life: Erika. To do this, he must take on the unsolved murder of Erika's father, and put the demons of his past to rest. Capturing Brooklyn at its most edgy and authentic, Hamill moves effortlessly between the sixties and the present, and from the yearning for peace and love to the hard-edged reality of the streets.

Synopsis:

Years after a possible involvement in a man's death at the height of the Vietnam protests and his own drug addiction, a journalist returns to his Brooklyn childhood home in the hope of reclaiming the love of his life. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Danny Cassidy couldn't remember if he'd killed the cop. So begins one man's journey through his fifty-year-old history and conscience in Long Time Gone, Denis Hamill's gripping novel set in the back streets and alleyways of Brooklyn, U.S.A.

It's the year 2001 when Danny, a divorced journalist, returns to his old neighborhood for his father's funeral. He's spent all of his adult life trying to leave Brooklyn behind him — along with all the drugs, music, and other psychedelic memories from the sixties spent on Hippie Hill. But now that the box of rain has been opened there's no turning back, and Danny must face some painful truths about the woman he used to love — and her father, a police officer, whom he may or may not have killed.

By turns a thriller, a detective story, and a coming-of-age tale, Long Time Gone is a bittersweet love letter to a lost New York that no reader will soon forget.
