Publisher's Summary

Fresh from the staggering success of The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, Marcus Goldman is struggling to write his third novel. A chance encounter in Florida throws him some inspiration from a surprising source: Alexandra Neville, the beautiful, phenomenally successful singer and Marcus' first love.

All at once memories of his childhood come flooding back. Memories of a family torn apart by tragedy and a once glorious legacy reduced to shame and ruin. The Baltimore Boys. The Goldman Gang. That was what they called Marcus and his cousins, Hillel and Woody. Three brilliant young men with their whole lives ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal. For years Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the real story of the Baltimore Boys.

Translated from the French by Alison Anderson.

    Story
    "OK follow up to Harry Quebert Affair but lacking"
    Any additional comments?

    The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair had a bit more of a mystery about it and an interesting format. This is a good character study but isn't quite as gripping albeit well written. Try Harry Quebert first, then try this if you want a more sedate book

    Story
    "AMAZING !!! "

    don't write audible reviews and after 5 years of a book a month on audible this has to be one of the best books both for writing and more importantly the narrator. I loved every minute if it so well told I was addicted to it...even listening at work ha ha
