Returning to the home of his long-estranged family to attend the funeral of his older brother, a beloved Italian-Catholic priest, Vietnam veteran Dominick Candiotti refuses to accept the police's suicide ruling and uncovers violent secrets.

McMillan Palgrave

Vietnam veteran Dominick Candiotti has been long estranged from his family. His late parents were close to the ruling mob clan in Youngstown, his sister was a bad-tempered and dissatisfied nag, and his middle brother was a corruptible police lieutenant. But in 1985, their oldest brother Richard Candiotti---beloved by every Italian Catholic in Youngstown as "Father Candy"---dies, and Dominick returns home for the funeral.

Dominick is greatly disturbed by Richard's death, which has been ruled a suicide. Dissatisfied with this answer, he sets out to find the truth, revealing secrets and coming face-to-face with brutality and violence.

Award-winning author Les Roberts pens a riveting and moving tale about walking the fragile tightrope between love and hatred.
