Overview

A Memory of Grief by Dale T. Phillips

Troubled ex-con Zack Taylor is haunted by the accidental death of his brother years before. Zack's guilt and anger have pushed him into a shadowy, wandering life, with little purpose and few attachments. When he hears of the death of his close friend Ben Sterling, a supposed gunshot suicide, Zack finds he now has a purpose-- to find out what happened. Then his purpose becomes an obsession.

Zack goes to Maine, where Ben died, and is a fish out of water, with no connections, no information, and no credibility. People don't want to talk about Ben's death, so Zack gets ever more frustrated, making enemies, getting into fights, and breaking the law in his search for the truth.

The only bright spot seems the potential for a relationship with a sympathetic nurse-- if he can control his violent streak. To draw out the killers, Zack offers himself as bait. But without a gun, he must rely on his wits and his physical skills to survive a dangerous game of drugs and death. Though managing a measure of justice, Zack is changed in the process, and must learn to live in a very different world.

I read this book expecting nothing. However, Phillips creates a good story line and keeps it a page turner. Good read!

I purchased this novel because I live in NH and this book is written by a New England author, the story takes place in a New England town, and it is published by a NH publisher. My curiosity was peaked. The author writes well and knows how to weave a good tale. I was impressed by this debut novel. It captured my interest right from the start and kept it until the very last page. I encourage others to purchase this book--it's a good one--and I look forward to reading more novels written by Dale Phillips in the future.

In the first few pages, i didn't think i would like the story. The main character was just too angry. But the story drew me in, and i ended up really liking him. I couldn't put the book down! I definitely will read other books by this author.

This was ok tho a little too unbelievable at times. Main character was almost a superhero, getting out of situations without a gun or anything. Just a little too weird. Wont be reading anything else by this author. Too out there
