Desperate for inspiration, a writer revisits a long-forgotten crime
After nine books, three wives, and a massive advance for his as-yet-unwritten next novel, Sam Boyd has run out of ideas. He tries to write but his characters are dull, lifeless. So his thoughts turn to his hometown, and the tragedy he once encountered there. Boyd was fifteen when he found Pauline Ostrova floating in the Hudson River. The official verdict was murder, and the girl’s ex-boyfriend was convicted. But decades later, Boyd remains certain that the killer still lives in his bucolic Hudson town—and he’s determined to write his next book about what really happened. He has come home for inspiration, but the longer he stays, the more Boyd’s investigation spirals toward madness and a final, shocking conclusion. This ebook contains an all-new introduction by Jonathan Carroll, as well as an exclusive illustrated biography of the author including rare images from his personal collection.
