Publisher Comments:

Combining The Pace of a detective story with the bold prose of a master storyteller, North is both an adventure and a pilgrimage. Alone and haunted by memories of his dead wife and child, Jack--who prowled the backwaters of Girls--returns to upstate New York from the Carolina coast, where he has been working as a security guard. A New York lawyer hires him to find her missing nephew, last seen in the area of Jack's northern hometown. His search gradually uncovers a dark underside of rural life and a cast of dangerous characters. Jack is besieged by memories as he uncovers a brutal crime and finds himself in a turbulent relationship with a treacherous woman. In trying to save another's life, Jack must relive his own; memory; obsession, and reality fuse; and Jack discovers the truth of Faulkner's observation that the past is not really past; it's not even over.

Synopsis:

Jack is driving north, away from the warm winters and wind-blown beaches of the Carolina coast, far from the shelter he has made for himself-a shelter against the past and the memory of his dead wife and child. A Manhattan lawyer has hired Jack to find her missing nephew, last seen in Upstate New York, the same place where Jack lost his family, and where as a campus security officer he was unable to save a girl from a murderer. Now, for Jack, its all about second chances-and what lies hidden in the ground.
