Overview

At 19, Dick Shumway had gone to work in the uranium mines of San Juan County. He had figured it would be a death sentence but the job hadn’t lasted long enough to kill him. Forty years of smoking Lucky Strike cigarettes is finally about to do the job. Shumway had never been a man on a mission but now he is determined not to go to his grave while Delbert Begay remains a prisoner of the state of Utah. He will claim responsibility for a murder for which Begay has already served 38 years of a life sentence. And that, he assumes, will be that.

Description

Dick Shumway had never expected to survive 55 years, but he already had. At 19, he had gone to work in the uranium mines of San Juan County. He had figured it would be a death sentence but the job hadn’t lasted long enough to kill him. Forty years of smoking Lucky Strike cigarettes is finally about to do the job.

Vanishing Perspective takes us to a not-so-remote place in a not-so-distant past where the world was a simpler place or so it seemed if you were a child. But Dick Shumway wasn’t a child in those days. He had been just old enough to irretrievably complicate his life. Shumway had never been a man on a mission but now he is determined not to go to his grave while Delbert Begay remains a prisoner of the state of Utah. He will claim responsibility for a murder for which Begay has already served 38 years of a life sentence.

When Elliot J. Gueller undertakes Begay’s representation, the justification the errand provides for making the 400-mile pilgrimage to his childhood home is just a windfall. Elliot seizes the opportunity to return to a place which he, on some level, still views through the eyes of a child. Along the way he will discover that maybe you can go home again.
