"The haunting story of an unforgivable crime, and a seeping evil that brings two families to the brink. When Roy Trench is killed in a drunken prank gone wrong, his brother Lewis sees blood on the hands of the man responsible: the abusive alcoholic, Eli Fagan. Though the courts rule the death an accident, the event opens a seam of hate between the two families of Knife's Point, Newfoundland. Desperate to smother the painful past with love, Lewis marries Wilda, and the pleasure he takes in their two children - Melvin and Toby - recalls the happier days of his childhood with Roy. But as he watches his small family fracture, the darkness of the past begins to cloud the present, leading Lewis back to Eli Fagan - and his watchful stepson, Garrett Glass. Powerfully written, with vivid and unflinching prose, Glass Boys is a suspenseful, deeply human saga of the persistence of evil and the astonishing power of love."--Publisher.
