Ghosting. Excerpt free pdf A dying drug kingpin enslaved to the memory of his dead wife- a young woman torn between her promising future and the hardscrabble world she grew up in- a mother willing to do anything to fuel her addiction to pills- and her youngest son, searching for an answer behind his brother's disappearance--these are just some of the unforgettable characters that populate "Ghosting," Kirby Gann's lush and lyrical novel of family, community, and the ties that can both bond and betray. Fleece Skaggs has disappeared along with Lawrence Gruel's reefer harvest. Convinced that the best way to discover the fate of his older brother is to take his place as a drug runner for Greuel, James Cole plunges into a dark underworld of drugs, violence, and long hidden family secrets, where discovering what happened to his brother could cost him his life. A genre-subverting literary thriller explored through the alternating viewpoints of different characters, "Ghosting" is both a simple quest for the solution to a mystery, and a complex consideration of human frailty and equivocation.
