"A complex, entertaining thriller," "with a crackerjack cast, pitch-perfect dialogue...and action scene posed exquisitely between menace and chaos." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) (named to Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2013) Charlie Beckham is a rising star among federal prosecutors until, on the morning of the most important court day of his career, a deranged homeless man turns Charlie's life upside down with a single word. He calls Charlie by a secret nickname known by only one other person in the world--Charlie's brother Jake, who went missing thirteen years ago. Charlie has a hundred questions but the homeless man disappears before Charlie can ask a single one. So begins Charlie's search for answers, and for his brother, a search that leads him down Boston's darkest streets, into its blackest alleys, and, finally, into its criminal underworld. But if Charlie wants answers he'll have to get them from some of the most feared and ruthless people in the city. Author's note: This book contains some adult language and violence.
