A three-generation crime saga... 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... Swierczynski just gets better and better.
I love the real American cop/noir feel to this novel and think the interwoven individual stories works incredibly well...This is a perfect blend of historical fiction and crime fiction. Highly recommended 5*
