Plagued with a rare disease that prevents him from recognizing faces, Billy carries a photograph in his pocket that is his only way of identifying his next target. Killing is in Billy's bloodline as a member of Philadelphia's dangerous Farren crime family.
While Billy stalks Philadelphia, Detective Kevin Byrne is assigned to a series of bizarre home-invasion cases and is joined by his former partner turned assistant district attorney, Jessica Balzano. Their investigations circle Byrne's childhood neighborhood of Devil's Pocket, and they find themselves revisiting a crime from Byrne's past that has haunted him for decades. What Byrne witnessed as a child in Devil's Pocket jeopardizes the Farren family - which makes him the next target on Billy's hit list.
A multigenerational story of hardship, guilt, and redemption, Shutter Man is Byrne and Balzano's most tense and personal case to date.

Difficult to get engaged, but satisfying ending.
I suspect this is less an issue with the print version, but between skipping from character to character and back and forth in time, I felt frustrated for at least the first third of the book and stopped listening several times. I enjoy Scott Brick's narration. I have also found the author's previous books to be satisfying, so I kept at it. Not one you want to listen to when your attention is divided.
