9780345430557: A Season in Purgatory

They were the family with everything. Money. Influence. Glamour. Power. The power to halt a police investigation in its tracks. The power to spin a story, concoct a lie, and believe it was the truth. The power to murder without guilt, without shame, and without ever paying the price. America's royalty, they called the Bradleys. But an outsider refuses to play his part. And now, the day of reckoning has arrived. . . .

From the Publisher:

"Mesmerizing."--The New York Times.

Glamour, wealth, success, power--the Bradleys are as close to an aristocracy as America has never had. And one day soon, if patriarch Gerald Bradley has his way, his charismatic youngest some will win the highest office in the land . . .

"A triumph!"--Marie Brenner.

Constant Bradley has what it takes to go all the way: looks, breeding, wit, and style. Yet the famed congressman has one fatal flaw: Beneath his handsome face lies a hidden rage that can explode . . . in murder.

"Stunning . . . witty, juicy."--Liz Smith.

Once, Harrison Burns was Constant's best friend. A scholarship student drawn into the Bradley's privileged world of seaside summers and exclusive clubs, he enjoyed the family's generosity--until the night when fifteen-year-old Winfred Utley was bludgeoned to death near the Bradley the estate and Harrison became the bearer of Constant's most horrifying secret . . .

"Compelling."-- New York Daily News.

Now, twenty years later, Harrison knows he must reveal the truth of that terrible night--even if stripping away the illusions around this powerful family earns him their undying enmity; even if the strength of their fury threatens his reputation, his family, and his life. . .
