The masterful novel from bestselling author Scott Spencer—now available as an ebook
A congressional candidate’s campaign threatens to unravel when he becomes consumed by an obsession with his dead lover
Aspiring politician Fielding Pierce and social activist Sarah Williams are madly in love. But while both are passionate liberals, their very different approaches to their beliefs result in a rollercoaster relationship. Nevertheless, when Sarah is killed in a terrorist attack during a mission to help Chilean refugees, Fielding is devastated and engrosses himself in his political ambitions. Years later, on the verge of election to the U.S. Congress, Fielding becomes haunted by Sarah’s memory, causing him to call into question not only his ideals but also his sanity. Told with heartbreaking intensity, Waking the Dead is a profound examination of love and loss. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Scott Spencer, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
