Publisher's Summary

Spencer's cinematic eye for detail and his powerful language are fully evident in Waking the Dead, where he weaves a tantalizing story of desire, morality, and truth.

Fielding Pierce is a rising young Chicago attorney who has been offered a seat in Congress. But even in the midst of the demanding campaign, Pierce still mourns the loss of his love, Sarah.

Five years ago, in an attempt to provide sanctuary for refugees, she was apparently killed by a car bomb. As Pierce becomes immersed in the world of politics, he begins to suspect that Sarah is still alive. Soon, his obsession drives Pierce to question all he sees and hears.

Capturing Pierce's growing anxiety and passion, narrator George Guidall's voice is the perfect match for this talented writer.

    "No suspense"

    This is not a suspense thriller. It is a novel about a man obsessed by the memory of his (?) dead lover, and a chronicle of mental breakdown.
    The printed book was published in 1988, with the story set ten years earlier and with many references to US politics several years before that. I am old enough to have been politically aware by then, but would expect it to be hard to follow for a generation unfamiliar with such characters as General Allende, Mayor Daley et al.
    This book failed to grip me, and I do not reccommend it.

    "an excellent read"

    i enjoyed this book. Spencer really explores the concept of one man's love, and his struggle to cope without her when she disapears. I would recomend this book to those people who enjoy books that show struggle and some form of reward.
