With unparalleled access to the detectives, defendants and prosecutors, Sean Flynn takes readers behind the closed doors of the Boston District Attorney's office to reveal the life-and-death world of crime and punishment in Boston. This is a story not only about the city's unprecedented war on crime, now lauded as the ""Boston Miracle,"" but also about a black man in a white man's city,;This is the Charles Stuart case, in which a prosecutor's father was the prime suspect in the murder of his mother in a terrible warehouse fire which killed six Massachusetts firefighters in December 1999. Here are riveting stories of the policemen who have fought Boston's well-documented battles from the crime scenes to the courtrooms to the jailhouse cells.;Flynn follows detectives who should be jaded into indifference, but instead slog through their mouldering cold case files to get their man. He profiles the prosecutors and defence attorneys who walk a moral tightrope between justice and compassion when dealing with children who kill.
