Nicholas Dal, the 27-year-old son of Russian immigrants, is technically an American, but his links to the past go beyond his accented English and addiction to vodka. Nicholas and what is left of his family have migrated to Colorado, where he attends college. They are relentlessly pursued by the mysterious Mr. Miller, but this is no spy novel. The Dal family secret has nothing to do with politics but with an intense and unusual psychic ability inherited by selected males, including Nicholas. His journal recounts his involvement with Jack (female) and her mother, who is dying of cancer and with whom Nicholas forms an unlikely but believable bond. Books in diary form are often stilted, but by presenting interesting people, a provocative story, and good writing, Kennedy's novel avoids this pitfall. It should be considered for purchase by most libraries. Mary K. Prokop, CEL Regional Lib., Savannah, Ga.
