"Frank Gale is sick of cheating on his wife, Anna, and he wants to tell her the truth, but in the right way. Everything looks better when he decides to take her and their daughter on a sudden trip to Mexico, where he can give Anna the carefully crafted letter that details the nature of his affair." "One mistake: He's late meeting them at the airport. He misses the plane; he'll have to take the next flight: and then everything changes." "In his first novel, the highly acclaimed The Player, Michael Tolkin explored the emotional geography of Griffin Mill, the Hollywood executive who literally gets away with murder. Now, in Among the Dead, the stakes are raised: What if the executive had a conscience? For Frank, there will be no escaping the consequences. A novel that begins as a domestic drama opens into a nightmare picture of the modern age." "Among the Dead is a penetrating, unsettling, and brilliantly written catalog of the truths that lie just beyond the reach of language; a diabolic, blackly comic illumination of the darker corners of the human mind."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
