AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'They were originally five. Elliot. Brian. Tallis. Cameron. And Dylan - charismatic Dylan - the mediator, the leader, the man each one turned to in a time of crisis. Five close friends, bonded in college, still coming together for their annual trip to Las Vegas.

'This year they are four. Four friends, sharing a common loss: Dylan′s tragic death. A common loss that, upon their arrival in Vegas, will bring with it a common threat: one that will make them question who their departed friend really was, and whether he is even worthy of their grief.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Danny
  • Epigraph:
    One writes, that 'Other friends remain,'
    That 'Loss is common to the race' -
    And common is the commonplace,
    And vacant chaff well meant for grain.
    That loss is common would not make
    My own less bitter, rather more:
    Too common! Never morning wore
    To evening, but some heart did break.


    Alfred, Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam
