|General Note:||"A novel" -- Cover.|
|Summary, etc.:||"Having lost much of his memory from a traumatic brain injury sustained in Iraq, army veteran Matthew Rose is called back to Montana after his father's death to settle his affairs, and hopefully to settle the past as well. It's not only a blank to him, but a mystery. Why as a teen did he suddenly become sullen and vacant, abandoning the activities and people that had meant most to him? How did he, the son of hippy activists, wind up enlisting in the first place?"--Publisher description..|

*Starred Review* Here's another brilliantly woven story about second chances from Montana native Dundas, author of the highly acclaimed historical novel Champion of the World (2016). This one is a thriller about an Iraq War veteran who returns to his hometown in Montana when his father dies. Matthew Rose is suffering from a traumatic brain injuryâthe "signature wound" of modern warfare. His grasp of the present is barely more tenuous than his memories of the past, which only come to him in snatches within bad dreams. He meets up with an old friend, Georgie, with no recollection that he once broke her heart. Matthew learns from her that they were two happy kids raised by academic hippie parents, but sometime in his teens he slipped into an inexplicable vacant stateâpointing to an earlier trauma. Then he left and joined the army. On his first night back, Matthew witnesses a raging fire that ignites an unsettling recollection of a long-ago fire, the two events ultimately colliding in his mind, and he follows the dangerous path that crisscrosses between them. As sure as Matthew deserves a medal, so, too, does small-town journalist Georgie, not only for her support of him, but also for her compelling drive to find the truth. Recommend this to readers looking for an inviting narrative with a very "now" feel. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
