Joe Coughlin is untouchable. Once one of America's most feared and
prominent gangsters, he now moves effortlessly between the social
elite, politicians, police and the mob. He has everything he could
possibly want; money, power, a beautiful mistress, and anonymity.
But in a town that runs on corruption, vengeance and greed, success
can't protect Joe from the dark truth of his past -- and
ultimately, the wages of a lifetime of sin will finally be paid in
full ...Chilling, heart-breaking and gripping, this is the most
complex and powerful novel to date from Dennis Lehane, writer on
The Wire and author of modern classics such as Shutter Island,
Gone, Baby, Gone and The Given Day.
