Home. Michael Harvey’s crime novels have been set in Chicago. In his latest novel titled, Brighton, Harvey returns home to Boston, as does protagonist Kevin Pearce. Although Pearce is a Boston Globe reporter, he has avoided his Brighton neighborhood for decades. When he finally returns, he encounters family, friends, loyalty and betrayal. Issues from the past gain new import in the present. I was thoroughly entertained by Harvey’s prose, the interesting characters and the fast-paced plot. Fans of gritty crime fiction are those most likely to enjoy reading this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
