A young fisherman is found dead in the nets of his boat off an island in the Pacific Northwest. From this sudden mysterious beginning David Guterson weaves a riveting tale about love and war, and the ways men and women struggle for survival and redemption. An intelligent and moving novel, it is far more than a murder mystery. It is a deeply affecting story of love and death, and a test of passions and of two heritages claustrophobically locked on one dot of land.
