A Face in the Crowd
The writing team that delivered the bestselling Faithful takes the readers to the ballpark again, and to a world beyond.
Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. His adopted Florida baseball team, the Rays, are going strong.
Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone he knows from decades past, someone who shouldn't be at the ballgame, shouldn't even be on the planet.
And so begins a parade of people from Evers's past, people he has wronged, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate.
Until one day, he sees someone even closer to home . . .
A FACE IN THE CROWD is a beautifully written story about grief, loneliness and revenge.
