Annotation:
Walter Mosley takes a break from mystery writing, returning to science fiction with this allegorical fable. A wave brings with it a large number of reanimated dead people, who claim they are emissaries of a harmony-seeking life force. One of those most personally affected by this phenomenon is Errol Porter, who confronts a somewhat altered and considerably younger version of his father, who died of cancer years ago. Errol doesn't quite know how to respond to the situation, but Dr. David Wheeler, a doctor with Homeland Security, certainly does. Convinced that the wave represents a dangerous demonic invasion, Wheeler imprisons Errol and his apparent father while he works to find a way of permanently destroying the wave-beings.
Author Bio
Walter Mosley
The son of a Southern black father and a Jewish New Yorker mother, Walter Mosley was born and grew up in Los Angeles, a city which figured prominently in his fiction. He worked as a computer programmer before dedicating himself to writing. His series of successful mysteries starring detective Easy Rawlins began with DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS, which was made into a film starring Denzel Washington. In addition to mysteries, Mosley's diverse body of work includes literary fiction (FORTUNATE SON, RL'S DREAM, etc.), short fiction (published in USA Today, the New Yorker, Esquire, and other publications), and some science fiction (FUTURELAND, THE WAVE, etc.). Mosley has also served on the executive board of the PEN American Center, the board of directors of the National Book Awards, and as president of the Mystery Writers of America. Winning critical acclaim, Mosley has received numerous accolades, including the O. Henry Award, a Grammy, the Anisfield Wolf Award, and an honorary degree from the City College.
