T H E FA M I LY H I G H TO W E R Brian Francis Slattery

In this novel of mistaken identity, two boys are both named after their grandfather: Peter Henry Hightower, a wealthy Ukranian-American criminal. One Peter ends up a journalist, the other, a small-time criminal. “‘There will be blood,’ Brian Slattery promises early on, and, man, does he deliver. Expertly paced and beautifully detailed, The Family Hightower is a Ukrainian-American Godfather—a time-traveling, globetrotting crime saga spanning the last century, spiriting the reader from Morocco to Zimbabwe to Romania and always back home to strangely exotic Cleveland. Completely satisfying and completely brilliant.” —Stewart O’Nan, author of A Prayer for the Dying and Last Night at the Lobster CLOTH 978-1-60980-563-0 $27.95 400 PAGES
