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.

T. Jefferson Parker is the bestselling author of seventeen novels, including the Edgar(tm)Award winnersCalifornia GirlandSilent Joe. Alongside Dick Francis and James Lee Burke, he is one of only three writers who has won the Edgar(tm)Award for Best Novel more than once. Parker lives with his family in Southern California.
