In Catherine O'Flynn's reflective follow-up to her award-winning debut novel WHAT WAS LOST, an English news anchor named Frank Allcroft, who specializes in feel-good local vignettes, begins to shed his innocuous persona after his colleague and mentor is killed in a mysterious hit-and-run accident. Frank has always been overly introspective, but he foregoes his pensive ways in order to investigate his friend's death. As his inquiry proceeds, Frank feeds off his newly active spirit to pursue other endeavors, such as a fight to keep one of his architect father's buildings from being torn down and a series of news stories about abandoned or lonely people.
