Living in politically driven Orange County, California, of the late 1960s, the three Becker brothers pursue leads relevant to their respective careers as a homicide detective, a minister, and a reporter after the body of a woman from a childhood rival family is found murdered. By the award-winning author of Silent Joe and Cold Pursuit. Reprint.

HARPERCOLL

The times, they are a-changin' . . .

The Orange County, California, that the Becker brothers knew as boys is no more -- unrecognizably altered since the afternoon in 1954 when Nick, Clay, David, and Andy rumbled with the lowlife Vonns, while five-year-old Janelle Vonn watched from the sidelines. The new decade has brought about the end of the orange groves and the birth of suburban sprawl. It is the era of Johnson, hippies, John Birchers, and LSD. Clay becomes a casualty of a far-off jungle war. Nick becomes a cop, Andy a reporter, David a minister. And the decapitated corpse of teenage beauty queen Janelle Vonn is discovered in an abandoned warehouse.

A hideous crime has touched the Beckers in ways that none of them could have anticipated, setting three brothers on a dangerous collision course that will change their family -- and their world -- forever.

And no one will emerge from the wreckage unscathed.
