Ed King free pdf A sweeping, propulsive, darkly humorous new novel by the best-selling author of "Snow Falling on Cedars: "a story of destiny, desire, and destruction that reimagines Sophocles's "Oedipus Rex" for our own era. In Seattle in 1962, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary--"a guy who weighs risk for a living"--takes a risk of his own, and makes the biggest error of his life. He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, the sexy, not-quite-legal British au pair who's taking care of his children for the summer. Diane gets pregnant and leaves their baby on a doorstep, but not before turning the tables on Walter and setting in motion a tragedy of epic proportions. Their orphaned child, adopted by an adoring family and named Edward Aaron King, grows up to become a billionaire Internet tycoon and an international celebrity--the "King of Search"--who unknowingly, but inexorably, hurtles through life toward a fate he may have no power to shape. An instant classic--David Guterson's most daring and dazzling novel yet--that brings a contemporary urgency to one of the greatest stories of all time.
