This new novel of sex, violence, and multiple murder set in a small midwestern town is David Wiltse's most complex and compelling work to date. Home Again is the harrowing story of Peter Ketter, a retired FBI hero who returns to his hometown with his wife and teenage son, hoping to escape the violence and brutality of his former life. Once there, however he becomes involved in a bizarre series of murders, a case as terrifying as anything he faces in seventeen years with the Bureau. In his search of the killer, Ketter confronts the most sinister force of human nature, not only in the psychopathic killer he is fated to hunt down, but also in himself. Ketter's dream of innocence becomes a nightmare of corruption. -Larry King on David Wiltse.

Wiltse's new thriller is charged with the ominous effects that made The Fifth Angel and his other mysteries so successful. But the author also invests his characters with humanity and makes one care about their problems. After wiping out a terrorist gang, FBI agent Peter Ketter is sickened by violence and quits the Bureau. With his wife and adolescent son Michael, Ketter settles in his small Nebraska hometown. Michael records part of the events thereafter, dismayingly different from his father's peaceful dreams. Peter, always sure of himself as a good family man, if not the "puritan" his jeering brother Edward calls him, becomes the insatiable lover of Karen Maust, whose husband Frank has accumulated a fortune from mail-order porn. Burdened by his conscience and troubles involving Michael, Peter remains aloof from the efforts to find the murderer of two young women. When his boyhood friend is the next victim, however, the enraged ex-agent uses illegal tricks to trap the killer. Facing his adultery and law-breaking, Peter knows he may yet solve the riddle of himself as he has solved the crime.
