They were the Sheridan men, ruled by passion, betrayed by love, heirs to a legacy of violence and forbidden desire. Gus, Boston’s top homicide cop: he knew equally well the backroom politics of City Hall and the private passions of the very rich, a man haunted by the wanton courage and perilous obsessions he inherited from his father…Conn, the patriarch, a lawless cop who spawned a circle of vengeance and betrayal that would span half a century…and Chris, Gus’s beloved son, a Harvard lawyer and criminologist, fated to risk everything to break the chain of obsession and rage…Three generations linked by crime and punishment—cops and heroes, fathers, sons, and lovers united at last by revelations that could bring a family to its knees…

It started when Conn Sheridan fell in love with Hadley Winslow, a sophisticated Boston society woman he could never have. Conn’s obsession compelled him to commit an act that would inextricably bind two families and three generations of cops in their shared disgrace—until one Sheridan had the courage to shatter the covenant.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 3/25/2011

    " Parker called this book, "his favorite book that no one read." It's an interesting story that follows two families through three generations, starting in Ireland and moving to, where else, Boston.


  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 2/25/2011

    " A decent book but wasn't one that I "just couldn't put down". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mick | 2/11/2010

    " One of my favorite Parker books. It's not Spenser, Stone, or Randall. This one is about Irish immigrants in Boston. Quite good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 3/28/2009

    " This is a stand alone, not a Spenser. I guess I really enjoy the writing style of Robert B Parker, no matter the subject or the character. This jumps in time and geography. Quite the convolution. Thoroughly leisure reading at its best. "
