Description

On its surface, life in Houston is as you would expect: drive-in restaurants, souped-up cars, jukeboxes, teenagers discovering their sexuality. Against this backdrop, Aaron Holland Broussard discovers the poignancy of first love and a world of violence he did not know existed. When Aaron spots the beautiful Valerie Epstein fighting with her boyfriend, he inadvertently challenges the power of the Mob. He also discovers he must find the courage his father had found as an American soldier in the Great War.

Professional reviews

"From New York Times bestselling author James Lee Burke - an atmospheric, coming-of-age story set in 1952 Texas, as the Korean War rages. Praise for the author: “One of the great American novelists - in any genre. In more than 30 novels over four decades, he has demonstrated repeatedly that he is a supreme storyteller and among the finest writers of contemporary prose” DAILY MAIL “A fantastic novelist […] so far above the prevailing standards of crime fiction that it is pointless to make the comparisons.” DAILY EXPRESS"
