By 1926, Prohibition has given rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston Police captain, defies his proper upbringing and his father's strict law-and-order orthodoxy. Graduating from a childhood of petty theft to a career in the pay of the city's most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the riches, thrills, and notoriety of being an outlaw. But life on the dark side carries a heavy price. In a time when ruthless men of ambition armed with cash, illegal booze, and guns battle for control, no one can be trusted. For men like Joe one fate seems more likely than all others, an early death.

I also enjoyed this book and took a real liking to Joe Coughlin, despite his 'vocation'. I listened to the audio book and thought the reader did a terrific job. I look forward to listening to more from both this author and reader.

Excellent book, very well read. The author captures the ambience of the times, and the characters are extremely interesting and well formed. Great plot. Dennis Lehane joins my "must read every new book" list of authors
