The solitude of the Upper Michigan Peninsula is Michael Collinsâ€™s heart of darkness in this compelling story of the unquiet dead. Frank Cassidyâ€™s parents burned to death almost thirty years ago; now his uncle is deadâ€”shot by a mysterious stranger who lies in a coma in the local hospital. Frank, working menial jobs to support his unfaithful wife and two children, heads north in a series of stolen cars to dispute his cousinâ€™s claim to the family farm. Once there, Frank wants answers, but realizes that what he is searching forâ€”and the promise of the American Dreamâ€”is quickly receding from his grasp. Brilliant and unsettling, The Resurrectionists is an ironic yet chilling display of American culture in the seventies and a compassionate novel about a man struggling to overcome the crimes and burdens of his past.
