Synopsis

When the love of his life is accused of murder, a university professor will stop at nothing to prove her innocence
On a late night drive home, Ike Goldman, a retired Columbia University law professor, saves a woman from killing herself by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. The woman’s name is Elizabeth Hopper, and Ike, a widower, unexpectedly finds himself falling in love. But everything changes when Elizabeth’s estranged husband, a rich Wall Street executive she claims abused her, is found murdered, and Elizabeth is the prime suspect. Now Ike must uncover the truth, even as he fights to protect the woman he loves. Fast-paced and suspenseful, Redemption is one of Howard Fast’s last novels, and a remarkable story of love and loyalty amid the most harrowing of circumstances. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
 

About Howard Fast

See more books from this Author
Howard Fast was born January 11, 1914. The grandson of Jewish immigrants from Ukraine, he was raised in a poor family, and his politics have always been an important part of his life and work. A fighter for anti-Fascist causes and a member of the Communist party, he was jailed for three months during the 1950s for refusing to testify about his political activity. Blacklisted as a result, he founded his own publishing house, Blue Heron Press, which released his novel Spartacus (1951), which was made into a popular film in 1960. Some of his works were written under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham. Fast's first novel was published in 1933 during the Great Depression, and he has had a solidly successful career ever since. Considered to be one of the world's most widely read writers, his books have been translated into 82 languages. More than 10 of his novels have been made into films, and The Immigrants (1977) was made into a television miniseries in 1979. His novels are page-turners, in which characters struggle with personal, political, and religious questions in their lives. The female characters-a number of his books have female protagonists-are strong, intelligent, and capable people who must fight to maintain their families and their fortunes amidst the tumultuous events of the twentieth century. Howard Fast died on March 12, 2003.

Even Ike lacks complexity: he is another of Fast's righteous heroes, Liz another good woman who just needs a man to protect her.
