“If You Find Emory Walden” By Author James Wallace Birch Available Worldwide on Friday April 10th

Eight years ago, James’ friend Emory disappeared, leaving behind his memoirs and the promise of a hidden cache of $3 million. James published the memoir and became a famous professor. But his obsession with Emory’s disappearance destroyed his personal life. He never went to find the money. Years later, James’ former student, Melanie, knocks on his door with a clue that Emory might still be alive. Together, they take to the road with a copy of Emory’s memoir and a taunting riddle someone sent them. Is the riddle a hint from Emory? Why is he reaching out? And what happened to the money James never went looking for?

If You Find Emory Walden is author James Wallace Birch’s long-anticipated follow up to the reader-acclaimed Discontents: The Disappearance of a Young Radical. Join James and Melanie on a journey through claustrophobic cities, suburban nightmares, and wide-open roads as they chase down the riddle of the disappearance of a notorious fugitive. Follow their van life on the road. Sing along with them to early 2000s pop punk and emo bands. But don’t trust everything you read in this fascinating blend of suspense, mystery, adventure, and nostalgia.
