The Two Faces of January

Front Cover
Atlantic Monthly Press, 1988 - Fiction - 284 pages
Three of them are waiting. Rydal Keener is waiting for something exciting to happen in his grubby little Athens hotel. At forty-odd, Chester MacFarland has been waiting much longer, expecting his life of stock manipu lation and fraud to catch up with him. And Colette, Chester's wife, is waiting for something altogether different.

After a nasty little incident in the hotel, they all wait together. As the stakes--and the tension--in theirthree-cornered waiting game mount, they learn that while passports and silence can be bought, other things can cost as much as your life.
