Absent FriendsBook - 2004
Jimmy. Markie. Vickie. Marian. Sally. Tom. Jack. Childhood friends, each will live in the shadow of a past that still echoes with hopes and regrets. Markie will die in prison. Jim will die a hero when the Towers fall. But it is a reporter's suicide and a colleague's desperate search for answers in the dark aftermath of a horrifying tragedy that will finally penetrate their silence. Both a daring mystery and a tribute to an event that changed our lives irrevocably, it is Absent Friends' rich characters and indelible portrait of New York City that readers will find unforgettable--and that mark this extraordinary novel as the signature work of an author poised to take her place in the front ranks.
