In The Lake Of The Woods

So Dead Beat has been to Lake of the Woods. Got him thinking all over again about that amazing work by Tim O'Brien In the Lake of the Woods. A mystery novel exploring the disappearance of Kathy Wade on the surface - beneath it, the book explores the 'disappearance' of John Wade caught up in the My Lai massacre. O'Brien intersperses his narrative with the testimony of real life figures and as ever explores the tension between fact and truth. What allows a human being to engage in the horrors of war? John Wade 'disappeared' during the horrific events he was a part of - who 'reappeared' in his place?
