Twenty-five years later, Sean is a homicide detective, Jimmy is an ex-con, and Dave is trying to hold his marriage together and keep his demons at bay - demons that urge him to do horrific things.
When Jimmy's daughter is murdered, Sean is assigned to the case. His investigation brings him into conflict with Jimmy, who finds his old criminal impulses tempt him to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave, who came home the night Jimmy's daughter died covered in someone else's blood.
While Sean attempts to use the law to return peace and order to the neighborhood, Jimmy finds his need for vengeance pushing him ever closer to a moral abyss from which he won't be able to return.

This was a great story with terrific narration by David Straitharn. I've seen the movie, read the book, and now listened to the audiobook. All are equally good.
