About the Book

Blake Wrightman died during the Vietnam War. Not on a Southeast Asian battlefield, but on an American college campus. He died the day the bomb he planted at an antiwar protest claimed a small boy’s life–and forced Blake Wrightman to vanish. Now, after twenty years as “Charlie Ochs,” Cape Cod lobsterman, Blake finds out that the feds are closing in. But a vengeful G-man gives Charlie a choice: face the music or help smoke out the beautiful hard-core radical who seduced him into the antiwar movement back in the 60’s. So begins a long, strange trip for the former Blake Wrightman, as he revisits the scene of a deadly revolution that didn’t end with the Vietnam War–and is about to claim a few more casualties…

Selected Reviews

“Revolution #9 by Peter Abrahams covers the U.S. from California to Cape Cod and reaches back two decades to the heyday of student unrest and anti-war protest. For more than 20 years Charlie Ochs has caught lobsters for a living and been accepted by his friends and neighbors… His attempts to free himself of the past and secure his future provide an absorbing mix of past and present and an explosive climax that neatly ties off every loose end of a rich and complex plot.”
– The Toronto Star

“…Charlie’s hunt through the past is an often painful but always gripping story. Abrahams weaves in and out of time and temperament with considerable skill, and reminds us with each plot twist of the damage Vietnam did to the soul of America.”
– Chicago Tribune

“Suspenseful…[and] solidly written… while touching on the moral and ethical struggles countless people faced during the Vietnam War.”
– Detroit Free Press

“A terrific thriller… Fast-paced and full of suspense.”
– Kansas City Star
