With the compelling narrative tension and psychological
complexity of the works of Laura Lippman, Dennis Lehane,
Kate Atkinson, and Michael Connelly, Edgar Award-nominee Lou
Berney’s The Long and Faraway Gone is a smart, fiercely
compassionate crime story that explores the mysteries of
memory and the impact of violence on survivors—and the
lengths they will go to find the painful truth of the events
that scarred their lives.
In the summer of 1986, two tragedies rocked Oklahoma City.
Six movie-theater employees were killed in an armed robbery,
while one inexplicably survived. Then, a teenage girl
vanished from the annual State Fair. Neither crime was ever
Twenty-five years later, the reverberations of those
unsolved cases quietly echo through survivors’ lives. A
private investigator in Vegas, Wyatt’s latest inquiry takes
him back to a past he’s tried to escape—and drags him deeper
into the harrowing mystery of the movie house robbery that
left six of his friends dead.
Like Wyatt, 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.
As fate brings these damaged souls together, their obsessive
quests spark sexual currents neither can resist. But will
their shared passion and obsession heal them, or push them
closer to the edge? Even if they find the truth, will it
help them understand what happened, that long and faraway
gone summer? Will it set them free—or ultimately destroy them?
