Description
"If you look hard enough into the history of anything, you will discover things that seem to be connected but are not." So claims a character in Frederick Reiken's wonderful, surprising novel, which seems, in fact, to be determined to prove just the opposite. How else to explain the threads that link a middle-aged woman on vacation in Florida with a rock and roll singer visiting her comatose brother in Utah, where he's been transported after a motorcycle injury in Israel, where he works with a man whose long-lost mother, in a retirement community in New Jersey, recognizes him in a televised report about an Israeli-Palestinian skirmish? And that's not the half of it. In Day for Night, critically acclaimed writer Reiken spins an unlikely and yet utterly convincing story about people lost and found. They are all refugees from their own lives or history's cruelties, yet they wind up linked to each other in compelling and unpredictable ways that will keep you guessing until the very end.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: In the wrong hands, Reiken's complex, innovative novel, which connects 10 characters, could certainly fail, resulting in an audiobook impossible for listeners to follow. Instead, Laural Merlington and George Wilson triumph in their narrations. At the beginning, both Merlington and Wilson assume seemingly straightforward personas. But as the characters and points of view multiply, the listener begins to truly appreciate how talented the narrators are in using pacing, inflection, and accents to thoroughly transform themselves. And that transformation is the key to Reiken's novel, which combines narratives across space and time to unlock the Holocaust mystery at the heart of the story. Merlington and Wilson expertly unravel that mystery through their consistently nuanced characters. M.O. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

        March 22, 2010
        A novel with a sawbuck of narrators could easily devolve into an unreadable mess, but in Reiken's (The Lost Legends of New Jersey
        ) able hands becomes a compelling tale in which one thread deftly connects 10 people. Beverly Rabinowitz, a middle-aged New Jersey doctor born in Poland during WWII, is taking a vacation trip to Florida with her cancer-stricken boyfriend, David. Beverly's musings while on her trip introduce four characters who will later become narrators: Jordan, David's son; Tim Birdsey, a tour guide/musician; Dee, the lead singer in Birdsey's band; and Jennifer, Beverly's oldest daughter. Characters continue to appear: FBI agent Leopold Sachs; Miriam, a childhood friend and an analyst; Vicki, a veterinarian; and Amnon Grossman, an Israeli soldier accused of murdering a Palestinian boy. The story moves dizzyingly through Florida, Utah, New Jersey, and Israel, among other places, and includes plot lines involving fugitives from justice, the Holocaust, and the Palestinian/Israeli conflicts—all illustrating that observations depend on the observer. An imaginative and exciting read.
