Waking the Dead
WAKING THE DEAD by Scott Spencer is the story of Fielding Price, an up-and-coming young attorney in Chicago. He has just been offered a seat in Congress. His victory is virtually guaranteed-all he has to do is run.But on the campaign trail, Fielding finds that he cannot get Sarah Williams, the beautiful love of his life, out of his mind. It has been twelve years since Sarah was killed in a politically-motivated car bombing. But as Fielding is drawn deeper and deeper into the slippery world of politics, he becomes increasingly suspicious that Sarah is still alive. The effect this has on his campaign-on his very life-makes for a novel of astonishing power and extraordinary suspense. The movie version of WAKING THE DEAD, starring Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connolly, was produced by Jodie Foster's Egg Pictures.
