Summary
Aug. 6th, 1998: Moe Prager, a former cop, waits to call his daughter for her 18th birthday. In the midst of an ugly family meltdown, Prager is desperate to find a way to make sense of what has caused his once-happy family to implode. As he waits, however, it is Prager who receives a call that might not only solve a case that has haunted him & his wife for 20 years, but might also supply the glue to patch his family back together. Dec. 8th, 1977: Patrick Maloney, a supposedly popular college student, walks out of a Manhattan nightspot into oblivion. Its no wonder Maloney s disappearance barely registers on the radar screen. Son of Sam strikes. Elvis is dead. Its the Sex Pistols vs. the BeeGees, Studio 54 and the Dirt Lounge, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and the neutron bomb. Moe Prager, a cop forced into early retirement by injury, certainly hadnt noticed Patrick Maloneys disappearance. But when Pragers ex-partner calls with an offer to work on the case, Moe, wracked with self-doubt over his undistinguished career, signs on. As Prager traces Patrick Maloney s steps from his upstate home to his college dorm on Long Island, from the Tribeca bar where he was last seen to an old flame s mansion on the Gold Coast, Moe realizes that nothing about the case, especially the details of the missing man s life, is as it seems. Even the picture his parents gave the police was two years out of date. Why? What could his parents be hiding? What tortured secrets might have driven Patrick to create a public persona so different from his true self?
