Summary
They were originally five. Elliot. Brian. Tallis. Cameron. And Dylan -- charismatic Dylan -- the mediator, the leader, the man each one turned to in a time of crisis. Five close friends, bonded in college, still coming together for their annual trip to Las Vegas. This year they are four. Four friends, sharing a common loss: Dylan's tragic death. A common loss that, upon their arrival in Vegas, will bring with it a common threat: one that will make them question who their departed friend really was, and whether he is even worthy of their grief. A COMMON LOSS is Kirsten Tranter's follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut, The Legacy. Yet again, Tranter's weave of watertight prose and literary sensibilities shows her to be a born writer with a precocious control of storytelling and style
Summary
Growing apart from his college friends in spite of annual reunions in Las Vegas, English literature professor Elliot West is shaken by the death of the most charismatic member of the group and quickly learns that the man was not who he claimed to be and had a dark influence on all of their lives
