    National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction winner. On Baritone Bay, in mid-afternoon, a couple, prim college professors in their 50s and married almost 30 years, lie dead, clubbed to death moments before by a thief while they are preoccupied making love on a desolate beach where, years earlier, they'd made love for the first time. The novel's present action moves from the moment just after their death, through their gradual decomposition, until they are discovereddays later, too decomposed to provide evidence of ever having been there. Along the way, the novel traces their lives together, the chronologically-reverse story of their morning together, and colleagues & relatives' search for them.
