From the book jacket: Many long
years have passed since the winter of blinding white when
Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate drove across the
hushed midwestern landscape and left a trail of blood and
pain. So why does Lowell, a Manhattan collector of
antiquities, still dream of what happened, despite his wife's
best attempts to draw him back and offer comfort? And who is
Susan, the teenager who appoints herself a detective, piecing
together the story of the murders while wondering if she'll
ever be loved like Starkweather loved his girl? And then
there's Caril Ann herself, who takes us back to relive the
ride she swears she could not control.
Blood at the Root
