The New York Times bestselling novel from Dennis Lehane is a gripping, unnerving psychological thriller about the effects of a savage killing on three former friends in a tightly knit, blue-collar Boston neighbourhood. There are threads in our lives. You pull one, and everything else gets affected. When they were children, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus and Dave Boyle were friends. But then a strange car pulled up their street. One boy got in the car, two did not, and something terrible happened - something that ended their friendship and changed all three boys forever. Twenty-five years later, Sean Devine is a homicide detective. Jimmy Marcus is an ex-con who owns a corner store. And Dave Boyle is trying to hold his marriage together and keep his demons at bay - demons that urge him to do horrific things. When Jimmy Marcus' daughter is found murdered, Sean Devine is assigned to the case. His personal life unravelling, he must go back into a world he thought he'd left behind. His investigation brings him into conflict with Jimmy Marcus, who finds his old criminal impulses tempt him to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave Boyle, who came home the night Jimmy's daughter died covered in someone else's blood...

Mystic was one of the most active shipbuilding ports along New England's southern coast during the mid-1800s. At the end of the age of sail, Mystic made a successful transition to a new economy based on textile and machine manufacturing, maritime engineering, and small craft building. These industries carried the village into the twentieth century. Today Mystic is a world-class tourist destination, a community that is both divided and unified by the Mystic River. The history of Mystic mirrors the history of many coastal New England towns, but the images here are unique to this southeastern Connecticut region and will be recognized by both residents and visitors alike.

Excerpt from Report on Improvement of the Upper Mystic River and Alewife Brook: By Means of Tide Gates and Large Drainage Channels The report of the preliminary Metropolitan Park Commission to the Legislature of 1893 suggested, through the accompany ing report and plan of Charles Eliot, its Landscape Architect, a river road and parkway drive from Winchester along Aberjona River and Mystic Lake and Mystic River to and across the marshes of Malden River, and through a portion of the cities of Everett and Chelsea across Snake Creek and Revere marshes to Revere Beach. Since then the permanent Board of Metropolitan Park Commissioners has been from year to year gradually acquiring land for such river road and parkway, and extending the con struction as funds became available. Revere Beach Parkway is substantially completed to Fellsway, in the part of Medford known as Wellington. From that point to High Street in Medford, at the foot of Lower Mystic Lake, necessary land for construction of the river road has been ao quired, and from High Street a road has been constructed through a park-like reservation along Mystic Lake and Aber jona River to Winchester, where a short piece of parkway connects with the westerly side of Middlesex Fells. The land along Mystic River was acquired Nov. 29, 1899, under a joint agreement by which the city of Medford acquired the land from Middlesex Fells Parkway to a point near Cradock Bridge, upon the understanding that the Metropolitan Park Commission would in due time construct the roadway thereon, and would also acquire the land and build the roadway from Cradock Bridge to Mystic Lake.
