Publisher's Summary

There are threads in our lives. You pull one, and everything else gets affected.

When they were children, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus, and Dave Boyle were friends. But then a strange car pulled up their street. One boy got in the car, two did not, and something terrible happened - something that ended their friendship and changed all three boys forever. Twenty-five years later, Sean Devine is a homicide detective. Jimmy Marcus is an ex-con who owns a corner store. And Dave Boyle is trying to hold his marriage together and keep his demons at bay - demons that urge him to do horrific things.

When Jimmy Marcus' daughter is found murdered, Sean Devine is assigned to the case. His personal life unravelling, he must go back into a world he thought he'd left behind. His investigation brings him into conflict with Jimmy Marcus, who finds his old criminal impulses tempt him to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave Boyle, who came home the night Jimmy's daughter died covered in someone else's blood....

    "Good but a bit predictable"

    Yes its a good story well read, but a bit predictable. Guessed the end in the first 1\4 of book and just hung around to make sure i was right.
    Not a feel good story either - depressing in a way.
    but worth it - definitely want to hear more of his books

    Story
    "Am I really reading the same book"

    I am really trying to enjoy this book, but my goodness - it is tortuous, using three paragraphs where two words would suffice. The narration is also slow and tedious, the plot is taking so long to materialise that I am losing the will to live.

    I haven't come across a character that I can be bothered to care about, but I am only at chapter 8, I reckon there are another 10hours or so, maybe someone will pop up as being sufficiently interesting to follow! I doubt I can stay long enough to find out.

    Where did all those 5 stars come from?

    "Breathtaking & Heartbreaking"

    Dennis Lehane has ripped the crown for heatbreakingly beautiful prose with a compelling story right off the head of James Lee Burke!
