A young girl, caught up in an inner-city gang war, crosses the line from victim to avenger...An innocent man is hunted by government agents for an unspecified crime.
A boy and a girl fall in love while ransacking a rich man's house during the waning days of the Vietnam War...A compromised psychiatrist confronts the unstable patient he slept with...A father and a son wage a lethal battle of wits over the whereabouts of a stolen diamond and a missing woman...Along with completely original material, this new collection is a compilation of the best of Dennis Lehane's previously published short stories.
At turns suspenseful, surreal, romantic, and tragically comic, these tales journey headlong into the heart of our national myths about class, gender, freedom, and regeneration through violence and reveal that the truth waiting for us there is not what we'd expect.
