The Long and Faraway Gone: a novel by Lou Berney
In the summer of 1986, two tragedies rocked Oklahoma City. Six movie-theater employees were killed in an armed robbery. Then a teenage girl vanished from the state fair. Neither crime was ever solved. Twenty-five years later, the reverberations of those unsolved cases continue to echo through the lives of those touched by the crimes.
