The Company You Keep

Neil Gordon

When journalist Benjamin Schulberg discovers a link between lawyer Jim Grant and a notorious Vietnam-era fugitive, the world that Jim has carefully built for himself and his daughter collapses.

Still wanted for murder in a bank robbery gone wrong in 1974, Jim is back on the run after decades living under a false identity, and he must travel deep into his past to clear his name and save his daughter.

Set against the backdrop of the Vietnam war, The Company You Keep is an intelligent thriller about political ideals, family loyalties, and the shadowy world of the radical anti-war group the Weather Underground.
