is one of the few mainstream novels to address the unique challenges faced by members of the Deaf community in any great detail. As a member of that community, and as someone who has been Deaf since birth, I believe this book is an important addition to the dearth of literature that exists about Deaf people and Deaf culture."
From the Author
This novel was inspired by the
murders of Deaf students at Gallaudet University, one of the world's most prestigious learning institutions for the Deaf, between 1980 and the early 2000's. The investigating authorities didn't know if the killings were 'inside jobs' and for a time nearly everyone connected to Gallaudet was under suspicion.
