WHILE TRAVELING FROM EUROPE TO NORTH AFRICA, the young American reporter Will Clark is drawn into killing a drug dealer. Pursued by other gang members and the police, his bond with his companions broken and his sense of himself shattered, Will plunges further into danger even as he searches for the beautiful Stacey Snow, an elusive blonde backpacker whose love might make him whole again—or doom them both. Will’s destiny is also driven by memories of his father, a man he idolized but whose true story has yet to be revealed.

A literary thriller that combines action and suspense with exotic locations, Shadows the Sizes of Cities by author Gregory W. Beaubien is the debut novel of a new talent in fiction. Among his influences for this book, Beaubien cites authors such as Ernest Hemingway, Paul Bowles, and Cormac McCarthy.
