Description: Prominent archaeologists Walt and Jocelyn Gaines had just completed the latest phase of excavation of a fabulous Mayan ruin when they were waylaid by bandits. In the skirmish, Jocelyn was fatally wounded. The couple's three sons, Clancy, Tom, and Will, are devastated, but the loss is compounded when their father suddenly cuts off all contact without explanation. Together, the trio attempt to reconstruct what happened, and discover their father living a life of surprising affluence with a mysterious young girlfriend. The brothers explore every corner of their parents' lives and eventually end up in Central America to confront their mother's killer. But just when they know enough to suspect the worst, they discover that the truth is actually much more complex than they could have imagined.- There are more than 3.2 million copies of J.F. Freedman's bestselling novels in print. Bird's-Eye View (Warner, 2001), his most recent, has more than 50,000 copies in print and was a Main Selection of The Literary Guild(R). The mass market edition was released in 8/02 with a first printing of 350,000 copies.- Fallen Idols contains many of the same elements that made Jim Harrison's Legends of the Fall (Bantam, 1980) a bestseller: a strong, larger than life patriarch; handsome sons; intense sibling relationships; and a bewitching female who sparks rivalries--all written in the evocative prose that has become Freedman's trademark.- In addition to writing novels, J. F. Freedman has also directed feature-length films and television programs.
