DAVID DANIEL

Most of Lowell's residents seem unaware of Kerouac's presence as they toil and scheme through their daily lives, but Rasmussen carries Kerouac along with another erstwhile visitor to Lowell--Edgar Allan Poe. He lives in the Merrimack Valley, north of Boston. As he and his date stroll along the midway, playing games of chance, the soft September night is torn by a scream. One of the carnival workers---a man with trouble in his past and a motive for murder---is arrested and charged with the crime. By the breathtaking climax, where Amy herself becomes the target, it is clear to Sparrow that he must confront the killer and his own demons as well in order to save her, his city — and himself. Beyond the flickering lights and the bright surfaces lies a shadow world where betrayal, deception, and violent death await.
