Today, he sees that same scene growing through his windshield as he approaches his old haunts in search of a document that is worth a whole lot of money to his new clients. Enough money to save his declining business, and to pay his secretary so that maybe she won't leave him.
Arriving back in town, Rick is confronted with memories that he has repressed so deeply, it is almost as though he is living the events for the first time. And his search for the documents just keeps coming up on dead ends.
Finding that he must enlist the aid of his former law partner, Rick embarks upon a journey that may cost him his sanity, if not his life. The sounds of Native American drums seem to follow him upon his research, and a native spirit haunts him through New York.
Discovering that what he remembers is not what happened before he left town, and what truth the document actually holds brings Rick to the point that he realizes that his life, and the lives of thousands of other people will never be the same.
Very well written.
The protagonist, Richard Wallace, is an attorney at law. His life is changed forever, and not necessarily for the better, when he receives a bizarre request from a client. He is asked to find a set of deeds, involving a number of ostensibly related properties in New York and New Jersey. The connection between the properties is a mystery, and so are the motives of his inscrutable client. However, Wall Street seems to be involved, and so do aspects of Wallace's personal life.
A peculiar kind of puzzle emerges from the shadows. The pieces seem to have in common only their incongruity. Is Wallace really in control of this assignment, or is he a pawn in someone's sinister game; and why are suppressed memories beginning to burst into his consciousness? To answer these questions, he may have to step into the abyss.
I think this book is cleverer than I am. It starts with Richard Wallace an Attorney who is not making much money receives an offer he can't refuse however he has to go to New York, somewhere at this stage we don't know why he does not want to go there. The actual task is not specified at this stage but it is slowly revealed, well sort of. Once it gets to the end it is revealed that Richard Wallace knew about it all the time. Well I am pleased that someone did. I found he whole story difficult to follow as it was interspersed with dreams and flash backs, often I was reading and then the book had gone off on a different track altogether.
I do like a straightforward story and this is not one.
