Set against the assassination of JFK, NOVEMBER ROAD is a poignant and evocative crime novel that centers on a desperate cat-and-mouse chase across 1960s America --- a story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities and the hope of second chances from the Edgar Award-winning author of THE LONG AND FARAWAY GONE.

In the summer of 1986, six movie-theater employees were killed in an armed robbery, while one inexplicably survived. Then, a teenage girl vanished from the annual State Fair. Twenty-five years later, the reverberations of those unsolved cases quietly echo through the survivors’ lives. A private investigator in Vegas, Wyatt’s latest inquiry takes him back to a past he’s tried to escape. Similarly, Julianna struggles with the past --- with the day her beautiful older sister Genevieve disappeared. When Julianna discovers that one of the original suspects has resurfaced, she’ll stop at nothing to find answers.
