On a foggy summer day in 1941, 36 people set out in a boat for a pleasure cruise off the coast of Maine. They are never seen alive again, and their vessel, "The Raven", is never found. Landesman uses this true story as a basis for his eerie, intriguing first novel, telling the tale of a community torn apart by mistrust and tragedy.

A mystery of nearly a half-century's duration fills the ambitious pages of Landesman's first novel, woven loosely around the apparently real-life case of the Raven, which vanished on June 29, 1941, with 36 passengers and its captain while on a sightseeing cruise off the coast of southern Maine.
