The second novel by Henry Kreisel (b. June 5, 1922, Vienna, Austria - d. April 22, 1991, Edmonton) Canadian writer and professor. "What at first appears to be merely a thrillingsuspense story of one man's relentless search to avenge a wrong, a tale th at culminates in dramatic events in Edmonton and a haunting epilogue in theCanadian north, becomes a penetrating study of guilt in our society. Henry Kreisel, highly acciaime d author of The Rich Man, proves in this long-awa ited new novel that he is one of Canada s outstanding writers. Head of the Department of English at the University of Alberta, he has made his home inEdmonton since 1954 and knows well the lonely beauty of the North Saskatch ewan River along which the city spreads. As a Canadian of European birth healso understands the contrasting forces between the old European and the n ew Canadian attitudes and experiences which pervade the city, and the storyset there. But his powerful and insistent narrative drive takes the story beyond its setting, beyond its sharp and perceptive character delineation and its dramatic pace and forces every reader to examine his conscience, to admit his individual guilt in a world where none of us are innocent." - from the dj.
