In West Akron, Ohio, there lived an elderly recluse who always wore mittens, even in July. He had no friends and no family, and was known only as the Man from Primrose Lane. And on a summer day, someone murdered him. Fast-forward four years. David Neff, the bestselling author of a true-crime book about an Ohio serial killer, is broken by his wife''s inexplicable suicide. When an unexpected visit from an old friend introduces him to the strange mystery of "the man with a thousand mittens," David decides to investigate. But the closer he gets to uncovering the man''s true identity, the more he begins to understand the reality-altering power of his own obsessions-and how they may be connected to the deaths of the old hermit and David''s beloved wife. Deviously plotted and full of dark wit, James Renner''s The Man from Primrose Lane is an audacious page-turner unlike anything you''ve ever read.
