Ward Just's novel opens with a chilling scene in which the wife of the protagonist (Thomas) is dying of cold and then murdered. Thomas battles grief and attempts to cope, with the death and with his past. The CIA has used him on occasion and he seeks to forget that part of his life. And so on. We learn much of the man's internal life as the book meanders from the present to the past. A good read. Not a page-turner from a "brand name" writer of thrillers; instead a sage and studied peak at aspect of the aftermath of 9/11.
