LAZARUS MAN opens with a boom. Literally. One June morning on Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem a five-story building becomes nothing but fuming low hills of rubble, the cars parked in front pancaked and coated in ash. Sirens. Havoc. Confusion. Destruction. And people missing.

Richard Price, our greatest chronicler of the city today, describes the effect of the disaster on the outer and inner lives of a rich and compelling group of characters. Anthony Walker is pulled from the rubble and, miraculously, survives, to find himself inspired by a religious sense of mission. Royal Lyons, who owns a failing funeral parlor, discovers a new lease on life. And Mary Roe, a hard-bitten NYPD detective, embarks on a personal quest to find a man who is missing.

Price presents a bravura portrait of a community on the edge of disintegration. Rich with indelible characters and incredible drama, LAZARUS MAN is a compelling work of suspense and social vision by one of our preeminent writers.
