Some have called this a "thriller" or a "mystery," but those labels are short-sighted. This is an excellent NOVEL about a dysfunctional family & their "friends" and enemies living on the fringes of urban American society. The chaaracters are real & multi-dimensional, and the settings are well developed. Highly recommended! aj west

First time reading this author. Lots to like, tho not always a smooth transition along the way. Devoured first half, struggled to finish second half. A little predictable but parts very true to the time setting. Will consider another shot at this author.

This was my first Michael Harvey book. I found out about it through a book review that had read, so I figured I'd give it a try. I went to the bookstore and sat down and read 50 pages and know it was going home with me. The only reason I don't finish it sooner is because I've been real busy. The story revolves around a family and friends that are wrapped up in a dark secret. The main characters are Kevin,Bridgette (Kevin's sister), Bobby (Kevin's Friend). The are twisted up in a dark secret and rough neighborhood. Someone is killing people with a gun that is tied in to this dark secret. Suffice to say there is a lot of twists and turns you don't see coming. Get your hands on this one!

Brighton – Michael Harvey - I am going to quote Stephen King, “Brighton is the f**king bomb.” I started this outstanding and superb novel yesterday and finished it this afternoon. Brighton reminds me of Dennis Lehane at his best, and that is the highest praise that I can offer. Every page offers subtleties and inferences that ask the reader to keep on reading. And believe me, the rewards are absolutely worth the effort. Brighton has it all. Crime, criminals, drugs, scumbags, inveterate gamblers, cops, lawyers, and reporters. This recipe for trouble starts in Boston in the 1970s. Families and friends doing what they have to in order to survive. So what if people are shot, strangled, drowned, and stabbed. All part of the fabric of America. The beauty is how the writer seams together all of the events and characters to make Brighton one of the most intriguing, fascinating, and time monopolizing novels that I have had the privilege of reading
