Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 150284799X, Paperback)From USA Today bestselling author Robert Swartwood, a new unforgettable novel that "will leave its mark on your heart" (Benjamin Percy).
In a small Pennsylvania town, one of the most famous women in history -- a woman who the world has believed dead for almost two decades -- is dying.
John Chambers walked away from his life eighteen years ago to become the woman's bodyguard. He gave up everything -- including the woman he loved -- because he believed that was his destiny.
But destiny has other ideas.
In the tradition of Bright Lights, Big City and A Prayer for the Dying, New Avalon is Robert Swartwood's finest work yet.
Praise for New Avalon:
"New Avalon is a suspenseful examination of love, loyalty, and identity that gathers steadily in tension and will leave its mark on your heart." -- Benjamin Percy, author of The Dead Lands, Red Moon and The Wilding
"Like middle-period Hitchcock, New Avalon opens sedately, slowly revealing an off-kilter world based on the most precarious secrets. Using a sneaky second-person, Robert Swartwood has crafted a satisfying revenge tragedy about identity and destiny." -- Stewart O'Nan, author of The Good Wife and West of Sunset
"A fine slow burn thriller." -- Jack Ketchum, author of The Lost and The Girl Next Door
