This is a novel of a teenage son, Sean Eldredge, who discovers his father, Henry—a cruel, impulsive and overpowering figure in his life—murdered, and finds himself initially accused of the crime. Sean’s life, already complicated by the recent divorce of his parents and his perception of that event as his mother’s abandonment of her proper place, and complicated as well by a somewhat confusing relationship with his own girlfriend, now spins into a phase in which he is unable to interpret the intentions of those around him with any certainty. The suspicion of guilt is lifted from him but that does nothing to put his own mind at rest as to the cause of his father’s death. He still thinks it was a murder, and he must, and will, clear up the matter in the adult world, a world that is still baffling and threatening to him.
