Summary

Brighton, 1975: A working-class Boston neighbourhood is simmering with violence and racial tension.

Fifteen-year-old Kevin Pearce gets caught up in Brighton's undertow and a crime that forces him to flee the city. Twenty-seven years later, Kevin returns after winning the Pulitzer Prize for an article on the wrongful conviction of a man from Brighton.

But when he's asked for his advice on a murder case, he's plunged into a web of deception which will test his loyalties to the limit.

Critic reviews

Struggle to get going

Long intro set in the 1970's made me nearly quit. Didn't care for any character.
