Description
"Selected by the Los Angeles Times as one of the ten best mystery novels of 1992, The Long-Legged Fly was a dazzling debut. This new Lew Griffin novel will mark James Sallis as a peer of the best detective fiction writers in the country." "Having "come through slaughter," Griffin has quit the detective business and withdrawn to the safety of his old home in New Orleans' Garden District, where he has learned to cope by transforming his experiences into fiction." "But now, spurred by a close friend's death, he must return to the streets - not only the urban ones that he mastered, but also those of the rural South that he escaped long ago - to search for the runaway daughter he didn't know that his friend had. Griffin discovers that we rarely know anyone, even those closest to us. And now he finds that he must also face two things he most fears: memories of his parents and his own relationship with his now-vanished son." "Moth delivers magnificently on the promise of its predecessor. But where Fly was stark and forbidding, Moth is expansive, bursting with marvelous scenes and unforgettable characters, filled at once with the matter-of-fact violence of daily life and with redeeming human compassion." "Moth confirms James Sallis as a major novelist and evokes as few books do the essential mysteries at the heart of all our lives, and one man's ongoing attempt to try to understand and survive."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Lew Griffin has quit the detective business and withdrawn to the safety of his old home in New Orleans' Garden District, where he copes with his past by transforming it into fiction. But following the death of a close friend, he returns to the streets—not only the urban ones he has conquered, but also those of the rural South that he escaped long ago—to search for the runaway daughter he didn't know that his friend had.

Griffin discovers that we rarely know anyone, even those closest to us. And he now finds that he must also face two things he most fears: memories of his parents and his own relationship with his now-vanished son.
