Reader's Digest Select Editions Vol 162 August 2009 Where Are You Now / Leaving Jack - Large Print Author:Mary Higgins Clark, Gareth Crocker Where Are You Now? by Mary Higgins Clark — It has been ten years since 21-year-old Kevin MacKenzie, Jr. ("Mac"), has been missing. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already enrolled in Duke University Law School, he walked out of his room in Manhattan's Upper West Side without a word to his college... more » roommate and has never been seen again. However, he does make three ritual phone calls to his mother every year: on her birthday, on his birthday, and on Mother's Day. Each time, he assures her he is fine, refuses to answer her frantic questions, then hangs up. Even the death of his father, a corporate lawyer, on 9/11 does not bring him home, or break the pattern of his calls.
Leaving Jack by Gareth Crocker
A fictional account of what a soldier endures after learning that the dog which served his platoon with such distinction in Vietnam, has been classified as “surplus military equipment” by the U.S. Government at the end of the conflict, and is ordered to be left behind. Although Finding Jack is a work of fiction, it is based on actual events at the end of the Vietnam War and was written to highlight the little-known plight of the Vietnam War Dogs.« less
