Publisher's summary

Hammett Prize nominee, 2017

Three generations torn apart—by bullets fired 50 years ago.

Philadelphia, 1965: Two street cops—one black, one white—are gunned down in a corner bar. One of the fallen officers, Stan Walczak, leaves behind a 12-year-old boy, Jimmy.

Philadelphia, 1995: Homicide detective Jim Walczak learns that his father's alleged killer, Terrill Lee Stanton, has been sprung from prison. Jim stalks the ex-con, hoping to finally learn the truth.

Philadelphia, 2015: Jim's daughter, Audrey, a forensic science student, reopens her grandfather's murder for a research paper. But as Audrey digs deeper, she comes to realize that Stanton probably didn't pull the trigger—and her father may have made a horrible mistake....

Critic reviews

"Impressive, intricately constructed . . . Well sequenced to maximize suspense . . . A twist-filled saga of family loyalties and civic corruption . . . Mr. Swierczynski's innovative, life-affirming novel also affords the traditional pleasures of a police procedural, including humor."—Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

"This is the first novel I've read by [Duane Swierczynski] and as soon as I finished it I went back and read three more by him. . . . Fast-moving . . . This book illuminates race relations in the '60s in Philadelphia and in the country at large."—Nancy Pearl, NPR

"Swierczynski just gets better and better . . . [A] bleak, powerful tale of corruption and the lasting effects of crime . . . Swierczynski's riskiest move yet [is] a resounding success, with each story line featuring full-blooded characters and intrigue that works both in its own right and in the larger context."—Booklist (starred review)
