Description

Ten-year-old Rachel Howard woke to the sight of blood on the hallway carpet and a glimpse of her father clutching his stabbed throat. Stan Howard died minutes later, and his bizarre small-town murder was never solved. Rachel's father was a laid-back, handsome man with no known enemies. Faced with her family's shock, Rachel coped by keeping silent and trying to pretend the murder had never happened. Seventeen years later, Rachel attempts to uncover what happened that night. Finally reconnecting with her father's family, she sorts through their memories of his death and presses the less-than-helpful detectives. Still bewildered, she seeks the only other two people present at the murder: her former stepmother and stepbrother, neither of whom she has seen since her father's funeral. The result is a tender portrait of a father and an investigation of memory, truth, and how a family moves on.--From publisher description.A journalist's investigation into the unsolved murder of her father describes the events surrounding his death when she was ten years old, her adulthood reconnection with her father's family, and her struggles to come to terms with his loss.show more
