Lou Berney: The Long and Faraway Gone

Lou Berney, June Lorraine Roberts, The Long and faraway gone, murderincommon.com

 

 

Rock & Roll Lullaby

 

1986: Two events in Oklahoma City. A young girl’s teenage sister goes missing, and a massacre at small cinema, leaves only one employee alive.

Fast forward twenty-six years. The lone survivor, now legally known as Wyatt Rivers, is a PI living in Las Vegas. A favour for a colleague has him back in Oklahoma City. He is reliving the events of that night and needs to know why he wasn’t murdered along with his friends.

The young girl Julianna, is now a nurse in her home town. She still feels the brunt of her missing sister. When an original suspect in the case reappears, she becomes obsessed with getting answers from him.

This book is a compassionate delivery on loss and the affect on lives years on.  It’s poignant and reflective, at times desperate and painful. When the two story lines rubbed up against each other I felt a smack of satisfaction. While not connected, they lead you in a way, to the realm of how and why.

Much more than expected. Thank you Lou Berney!

Here’s another book where I felt such an impact: Blood on the Tracks

    I liked your description: “a smack of satisfaction”. There have been some recent (and popular novels) I’ve read lately that did not have said Smack and, as a reader, I find it rather annoying.
