Walker is at a party where he meets Rachel. Two days later she turns up at his apartment. However, it's not Walker she wants but her husband Malory, who has gone missing. She asks Walker to find him. So begins this strange, beautiful, road-movie of a novel that takes the hero across the vast landscape of middle America on the trail of a man he has never met. And as Walker's search grows in its weird intensity, it seems that somebody else is following, searching for him too.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A short, brilliant novel, The Search offers more in 150 pages than most books twice that length * * Guardian * *
As elegant as a mathematical theorem correctly expressed -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett * * Sunday Times * *
Dyer injects an almost magical randomness into what ought to be the most conventional of tales, and gives us Surrealism where we might have expected Dirty Realism... It is a vivid and puzzling alternative to the everyday, and its after-image is hard to erase -- Erica Wagner * * Spectator * *
One of the best thriller scenarios I've ever read -- Tom Hiney * * Independent * *
