Publisher's Summary

The writing team that delivered the best-selling Faithful takes the readers to the ballpark again, and to a world beyond.
Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. His adopted Florida baseball team, the Rays, is going strong. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone he knows from decades past, someone who shouldn't be at the ballgame, shouldn't even be on the planet. And so begins a parade of people from Evers's past, people he has wronged, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day, he sees someone even closer to home....
A Face in the Crowd is a beautifully written story about grief, loneliness, and revenge.

Loved it

Actual story 5 *. It's a typical SK without rehashing anything, brilliant build up and loved the reveal at the end

but but but loses a star for being alone and therefore I'm not getting much listening time for my credit. I think this is so cheeky and I only got it because I was desperate for some new King.
