Time becomes their enemy when the kingpin they helped send to prison over a decade ago is released—and he has two goals in mind. Find the legendary hoard of King Croesus, and kill Sam and Remi Fargo.

    Richard Gould anticipait avec plaisir sa retraite à passer au moins une partie de son temps dans la maison ancestrale qu’il avait rénovée dans un village tranquille de l’Ontario et plus particulièrement à son projet principal : rendre ses lettres de noblesse aux ruines d’un moulin situé au bord d’une rivière. La découverte de deux vieux livres cachés dans les décombres allait donner du piquant à ce projet jusqu’à ce qu’il se produise une série d’événements d’abord bizarres, puis lugubres et bientôt mortels. Inexorablement, Richard est entraîné plus profondément dans une histoire dangereuse culminant en une rencontre meurtrière près de la ville historique de Heidelberg.

    Griffin, Daniel
    Sommaire:

    It is 1993 on Vancouver Island. A group of idealistic environmental activists, convinced their peaceful protests have been in vain, turn to sabotage. But in a single night everything they’ve worked for goes terribly wrong: a security guard arrives just as the group sets off an explosion at a logging company warehouse. Two Roads Home follows these activists as their lives―and their cause―spiral out of control. Pete, who set the bomb, heads off the grid where he discovers a vibrant community of squatters who have been affected by the explosion in unexpected ways. Meanwhile, Pete’s mother is determined to track him down in hopes she can help clear his name. In Two Roads Home, Daniel Griffin deftly re-imagines history: what if, instead of the peaceful anti-logging protests of the 1990s, things had gone too far? How far is too far, when it comes to protesting injustice? And what happens when that line is crossed?
