Live to Regret
Owen Keane returns, once again on the trail of human mysteries, hoping to find clues to the spiritual questions that haunt him. In this compelling new novel, Owen is struggling to recover from the sudden death of Mary Ohlman, the wife of his friend Harry - and, years ago, Owen's great love. But Owen must overcome his own grief to investigate Harry's strange behavior and extended retreat in a small New Jersey seashore town. Unsure whether Harry is tormented by sorrow, alcohol, or guilt, Owen gets caught up not only in his friend's troubles, but also in those of a doubtful priest and an enigmatic young woman, as well as the dark secret of the town itself. Untangling the mysteries of death and memories, Owen begins to understand his own life and future.
