Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

St. Paul, Minnesota, 1939. The body of a beautiful dime-a-dance girl is found on a hillside, and Police Lieutenant Wesley Horner, struggling and alone after his wife's recent death, heads the investigation into her murder. His chief suspect is Herbert White, an eccentric recluse and hobby photographer who spends his days recording his life in detailed journal entries and scrapbooks. In Mr. White's Confession, Robert Clark illuminates the complex relationships between truth and fiction, past and present, faith and memory.
 
Mr. White's Confession is the winner of the 1999 Edgar Award for Best Novel.

Review:

"Robert Clark has written a book that is instantly familiar and continually surprising, a meditation on memory, love and loss wrapped in the wrinkled suit of a classic American genre." Minneapolis Star-Tribune
