About Shadow of the Hare: SHADOW OF THE HARE is the second volume of the RECALL CHRONICLES, a series of tales about a 22nd-century world in which no one ages and personal memories are under corporate management. It is also a world in which books have ceased to matter and barely exist, a frustrating turn of events for volume two’s main character Malia Poole, who is a stubbornly dissident author and bibliophile. Malia remembers how things changed through the 21st century and how life was in Washington, D.C., where she worked at an underground secondhand bookstore. After fifty years of self-imposed exile in West Texas, Malia returns to a find things have only gotten worse - much worse. In Dallas, Nigeria, and India she doggedly pursues the truth her heart demands.
