At long last, Brighton is here! The LLF team has been lucky enough to witness this incredible thriller—one of the year's best—blossom from a manuscript brimming with promise to a critically acclaimed powerhouse of a novel. And boy we can't wait to see it on library and store shelves!
This riveting read follows two friends who grew up together in the gritty Boston area of Brighton. Following a shocking act of violence they commit for the sake of justice (or so they think), the two friends' lives take drastically different paths: Kevin, the golden boy, leaves Brighton and grows up to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist; Bobby, the not-so-golden boy, stays to take the fall, and, as an adult, becomes the prime suspect in a string of grisly murders that Kevin is now investigating.
We can't say enough about this book that Booklist, in a starred review, called "masterful" and Library Journal, also starred, proclaimed "riveting." Still not sure? Check out the fantastic book trailer below and be sure to pick up a copy of Brighton here.
