Publisher's Summary

Fresh from the staggering success of The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, Marcus Goldman is struggling to write his third novel. A chance encounter in Florida throws him some inspiration from a surprising source: Alexandra Neville, the beautiful, phenomenally successful singer and Marcus' first love.
All at once memories of his childhood come flooding back. Memories of a family torn apart by tragedy and a once glorious legacy reduced to shame and ruin. The Baltimore Boys. The Goldman Gang. That was what they called Marcus and his cousins, Hillel and Woody. Three brilliant young men with their whole lives ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal. For years Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the real story of the Baltimore Boys.
Translated from the French by Alison Anderson.

It was as if I was in the story myself. I couldn't wait to sit in my car and be drawn in to the Baltimore Boys! Brilliant!!

Superb!

Having listened to and thoroughly enjoyed Joel Dicker's previous book The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, I was eager to discover if he would maintain the same high standard and quality with this his second novel and he most certainly has. It's a wonderful story, beautifully written - the characters are three dimensional and I really cared what was happening to them. A fairly long listen at a shade over 14 hours I loved every minute of it. Robert Slade's narration was perfect - just wished I hadn't finished it now.
