Generation Loss is a gritty, patient thriller that invests as much in character and setting as it does in plot. You might not like Cass Neary, but you'll want to follow her on her strange excursion to a wintry island off the coast of Maine -- an excursion that becomes, quite unexpectedly, a mystery revealing unspeakable horrors. Reading this, I felt so cold . . .— Morgan
Thirty years later she is adrift, on her way down, and almost out when an old acquaintance sends her on a mercy gig to interview a famously reclusive photographer who lives on an island in Maine. When she arrives Down East, Cass stumbles across a decades-old mystery that is still claiming victims, and she finds one final shot at redemption.
Patricia Highsmith meets Patti Smith in this mesmerizing literary thriller.
