Brighton, Paperback / softback Book

Description

'Brighton is the f***ing bomb! I loved it!' Stephen KingYou came back here to bury your past ...

Thing is, you gotta kill it firstBrighton, 1975: a Boston neighbourhood where racial tensions run high and gangs jostle for dominance in the trades that matter - drugrunning, book-keeping and theft.

Fifteen-year-old Kevin Pearce knows his best hope is to get the hell out before its bloody streets get a grip on his dreams.

But when an act of violence tears their home apart, Kevin is forced to leave for New York, changing the course of his life forever. Twenty-seven years later Kevin wins the Pulitzer Prize for an investigative article on the wrongful conviction and death of a man from Brighton, and decides to visit his old neighbourhood for the first time in decades.

But his past has long shadows - shadows which have taken on a life of their own. And when Kevin's prosecutor girlfriend Lisa asks his advice on a murder case, he is plunged into a web of deception and bloodshed that will test his loyalties to the limit and place the life he has built at risk.
