    Tim Underhill, now an acclaimed novelist, travels back to his home - town of Millhaven, Illinois after he gets a call from John Ransom, an old army buddy. Ransom believes there’s a copycat killer on the loose, mimicking the Blue Rose murders from decades earlier - he thinks his wife could be a potential victim. Underhill seeks out his friend Tom Pasmore, an aging hermit who has attained minor celebrity as an expert sleuth, to help him investigate. They quickly discover that Millhaven is a town plagued by horrifying secrets....

    Gerald says: "Very enjoyable culmination of Mystery & Koko"
    "A Book worth reading."

    If you could sum up The Throat in three words, what would they be?

    Of our time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Vietnam was more than a war.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a complex book that for baby boomers is an interesting read. The Vietnam war is an integral part of the plot, and the book shows that in the name of "war", we can lose our way, that we can sacrifice our values for not a goddamn thing.
