Publisher's Summary

An extraordinary thriller - gripping, haunting, and marvelously told - about two friends growing up in a rapidly changing Boston who must face the sins of their past in the midst of a series of brutal murders.
"You came back here to bury your past.... Thing is, you gotta kill it first."
Kevin Pearce - baseball star, honor student, the pride of Brighton - was 15 when he left town in the back of his uncle's cab. He and his buddy, Bobby Scales, had just committed heinous violence for what they thought were the best of reasons. Kevin didn't want a pass, but he was getting it anyway. Bobby would stay and face the music; Kevin's future would remain as bright as ever. At least that was the way things were supposed to work, except in Brighton things never work the way they're supposed to.
Twenty-six years later, Kevin is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for The Boston Globe. He's never been back to his old block, having avoided his family and especially Bobby Scales. Then he learns his old friend is the prime suspect in a string of local murders. Suddenly Kevin's headed home - to protect a friend and the secret they share. To report this story to the end and protect those he loves, he must face not only an elusive, slippery killer but his own corrupted conscience.
A powerhouse of a thriller, Brighton is a riveting and elegiac exploration of promises broken, debts owed, and old wrongs made right...no matter what the cost.

Boston Noir

This reads like Michael Harvey channeling Dennis Lehane. Their discriptions of the "low end" of Boston are remarkably similar. Very dark; every family seems dysfuntional, secrets abound, and violence is commonplace. I have to comment on the narrator; he is fine with the story, but can not read female dialogue convincingly.

Brighton

I loved the book, of course I'm sure it helped that I was born and raised in Brighton. I could identify all the places he referred to like tar park , chandlers pond it was like a trip down memory lane for me
