A Perfect Night to go to China Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Perfect Night to go to China

Roman, a popular TV interviewer, is at home with his 6 year old son, when he decides to go out for just 15 minutes. When he returns, his son has vanished! Of course there is the frantic police search and extensive media coverage. But most of this beautifully written little book deals with Roman's feelings, actions and relationships after this terrible loss. He starts doing rather bizarre things, like visiting houses he never visited before; his dream world becomes very real, and he is convinced his son is alive. His grieving wife asks him to leave. One of the policemen on the case has started following him around, wondering what in the world he is up to.
