7/4/1976 Rozan's Absent Friends begins
July 4, 1976. S.J. Rozan's first non-series mystery is all about the after-effects of 9/11 on the lives of New Yorkers, but it actually starts on Independence Day in the Bicentennial year, when her characters were just kids.
“Rozan shifts among several narrators and between present and past in this riveting offering reminiscent of Dennis Lehane’s Mystic River. An unforgettable elegy to the clear September morning that forever changed our lives.” –Booklist
