This is an auction for THE RESURRECTIONISTS by Michael Collins.

“A newspaper headline "Farmer murdered by mystery man" triggers a chain of events narrated by Frank Cassidy, the quintessential unreliable witness. From the age of five, when he was traumatized by the burning death of his parents, Frank was raised by his uncle Ward, who led him to wonder whether he may have been responsible for starting the blaze. Subsequent therapy and hypnosis only deepen the mystery and lead to Frank's eventual breakdown, hospitalization, and electroshock therapy, further muddying his own memory of events. After reading the newspaper account of his uncle's murder, Frank, accompanied by his wife and sons, returns to Michigan, robbing and stealing along the way, in a make-or-break attempt to solve the murder, reclaim the family farm, and uncover long-buried family secrets. While the putative killer and only witness to the murder lies in a coma, his doctor (Frank's former therapist) suspects that he has "locked-in syndrome" and may be able to communicate what he knows. Against a backdrop of 1970s television, from Police Woman to Starsky and Hutch, suspense builds to a heart-stopping conclusion. This tension-filled page-turner by the Booker Prize-nominated Collins (THE KEEPERS OF TRUTH) is recommended.”
