Before the "New York Time"s bestselling success of "Defending Jacob, " William Landay wrote this widely acclaimed second novel of crime and suspense, which was named a Favorite Crime Novel of the Year by the "Los Angeles Times" and several other newspapers.
Boston, 1963. Meet the charming, brawling Daley brothers. Joe is a cop whose gambling habits have dragged him down into the city's underworld. Michael is a lawyer, always the smartest man in the room. And Ricky is the youngest son, a prince of thieves whose latest heist may be his last. For the Daleys, crime is the family business--they're simply on different sides of it. Then a killer, a man who hunts women with brutal efficiency and no sign of stopping, strikes too close to the Daley home. The brothers unite to find the Strangler, a journey that leads to the darkest corners of Boston--and exposes an even deeper mystery that threatens to tear the family apart.

I don't like when authors use real events in their novels. Its confusing because you don't know what's real and what they changed. Its also disrespectful because they are talking about real victims. Other than that I liked this book.
