Description

A BOOKLIST BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR * FINALIST FOR THE HAMMETT PRIZE Three generations torn apart-by bullets fired fifty years ago. Philadelphia, 1965: Two street cops-one black, one white-are gunned down in a corner bar. One of the fallen officers, Stan Walczak, leaves behind a 12-year-old boy, Jimmy. Philadelphia, 1995: Homicide detective Jim Walczak learns that his father's alleged killer, Terrill Lee Stanton, has been sprung from prison. Jim stalks the ex-con, hoping to finally learn the truth. Philadelphia, 2015: Jim's daughter Audrey, a forensic science student, re-opens her grandfather's murder for a research paper. But as Audrey digs deeper, she comes to realize that Stanton probably didn't pull the trigger-and her father may have made a horrible mistake...

Professional reviews

"It makes perfect sense to use three narrators to tell the stories of the three family members at the center of an unsolved mystery. Rick Zieff sturdily personifies Stan Walczak, a cop who gets gunned down in a bar in 1965. John Glouchevitch stoically portrays Stan's son, Jimmy, a talented but alcoholic detective who, in 1995, stalks the parolee he believes is responsible. Christine Lakin enlivens the best character of the lot, Jimmy's adoptive daughter, Aubrey, the sarcastic, tattooed black sheep of the family and fledgling criminologist who, in 2015, hopes to solve her granddad's murder. In alternating chapters, the trio carries listeners through the crime's many twists, all hinging on a family secret. Three skilled narrators bring a new meaning to the term "dysfunctional family."
