The book tells the story of Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, two rookie cops working together in 1973 New York City. When their families end up living next door to each other in a suburb just outside the city, it sparks a lifelong friendship between their children, Kate and Peter. What happens behind closed doors in both houses sets the stage for the explosive events to come. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next 40 years.
