ABC SUMMER READ: "Don't let the cover of this book fool you. This is a great crime novel about how the murders of three young boys in 1976 destroyed a family. The main character, Don, a gay man living in San Fransisco, comes home to help his family when his father is dying. His father was one of the suspects of these killings forty years ago, and after all these years the stigma of suspicion is still palpable. Don wants to help his father remove the suspicion before he dies and tries to figure out what happened all those years ago. But the story is about much more, about growing up gay, about the love of a family, about losing people, about falling in love. This story has plenty of unexpected twists that make it a great read, both emotional and as a crime story. Highly recommended." - Jilles, ABC Amsterdam staff.
For more than forty years, the stain of horrific allegations against their father has haunted the Esker sons. When three little boys were murdered in 1975, their dad was suspected of the crimes. The immense strain of the unsolved case shattered the family, sending the brothers reeling into destinies of death, flight, and, in the case of Don Esker, shame-filled silence.
Years later, Don returns to the family home in North Homestead, Ohio, to help care for his dying father in his final months. His dad longs for the peace that will only come with clearing his name. If Don can find the killer, he can heal his family-and himself. His own redemption begins when he becomes romantically involved with Bruce, who joins the hunt and forces Don to confront the unthinkable answer they've uncovered.
