The characters are compelling but the plot gets convoluted and then ludicrous. Very dark, grim and violent. I prefer the Chicago books to this depressing take on crime and going-nowhere people.

What a great read. It's an intense story of friendship, loyalty & the family ties that bind you to your past. A tense, gritty book that should appeal to fans of Dennis Lehane (especially "Mystic River") & Greg Iles' Penn Cage series.

Before he became a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Kevin Pearce grew up in gritty Brighton, MA, where he committed a horrible act of violence -- one that he got away with. Nearly three decades on, having avoided Brighton ever since, he's returned to a neighborhood embroiled in a series of murders that could bring to light his own bloody past. Told from multiple points of view, this intense and descriptive novel is sure to appeal to fans of Dennis Lehane's Boston-based crime novels.
