About this title

Synopsis:

Working as a fisherman on the coast of Rhode Island, Paul Wedekind longs to escape the nightmares of his past, when he served in the East Germany army and became involved with the destructive and powerful Stasi, but his past returns to torment him and destroy his newfound love with a fellow ex-KGB contact.

From the Publisher:

"Rich in detail, chokingly tense and gorgeously romantic...hoists its author to the top of his class." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Watkins writes fiction as thoughtful as it is stirring. His clean, Hemingwayesque prose speaks with urgency and beauty." --Dan Cryer, Newsday

"From the first sentence, Paul Watkins' book grabs the reader and doesn't let go....As changeable as the sea: beautiful and romantic and brutal and ugly, but always fascinating." --Chicago Tribune

"A book that will only reinforce his reputation as one of the best young writers....Watkins is an exceptional storyteller." --Providence Sunday Journal
