Johann Adler is at a crossroads in his life. He is living a simple life in northern Minnesota, teaching disinterested students high school English, and contemplating retirement. But Johann carries with him dark secrets from his past as a sailor during the Vietnam War. His scars, both physical and psychological, have been suppressed for decades.
Now, when he feels that the final chapter of his life might be over, he embarks on a journey across the country to visit the remaining men from his navy squadron. What he discovers could propel him into his golden years, or send him to an early grave. Although a departure from his espionage and thriller novels, Trevor Scott takes us on a trip into the universal human condition of the baby boom generation.
An evocative tale of American literature, Embrace the Great Nothing leads the listener to a meaningful understanding of the contemplation of life, while giving the listener Scott’s trademark elements of mystery and suspense.
