This haunting first novel follows the relationship between a hospital patient known as "the tall man" and a nurse. The victim of a gunshot wound who was discovered on a remote beach northwest of Seattle, the tall man lies motionless and nearly mute as Sara Black vigilantly tends his health. As Sara struggles to recover from a loss of her own, the death of her four-year-old son in a car accident, she finds herself spending more and more time with her patient. He, in turn, draws her into a strange and chilling world of his past on an Alaskan island. As Sara begins to face some truths of her own, she discovers that he may not be the man he says he is.More
