What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Wil Haygood Author of King Of The Cats: The Life And Times Of Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. A brave and chilling story...You won't forget the landscape rendered in this book, nor the ache of family lore. And certainly not Arax's beautiful and cleareyed writing that enables him to reclaim his father's lost honor.

Peter H. King Columnist, Los Angeles Times Almost every American town harbors some brutal secret, but few produce writers like Mark Arax with both the courage and artistic talent needed to coax the story out and shape it into fine literature. Of course, Arax had an extra incentive: the footsteps he followed ran straight through his own family, straight through his own heart.

This is a biography / memoir / murder mystery / true crime book and also provides a interesting slice of California history -- of both Fresno and the Armenian immigrant community.Perhaps its comprehensiveness is due to the fact that the author is/was a Los Angeles Times reporter. But it is absolutely not a dry newspaper report -- it is a very touching account of a son trying to piece-together and perhaps solve the tragedy of his father's murder when he was a child.
