Garden of Last Days
"It's a violent book in many ways, but the violence that is described is the kind that is with us every day, whether we recognize it or not. The characters are wonderful and compassionately drawn, even the thugs prowling the streets of greater Boston's underworld. No one who reads this book will ever forget it."
-James Lee Burke
