Considered by some to be Lehane's MagnumOpus, this novel neatly manages to handle issues of terrorism, race, and class warfare without devolving into an AuthorTract. Every character, real-life or fictional, is given fair treatment in regards to their perspectives and motives. It's just a matter of [[GrayAndGrayMorality what characters the reader finds more sympathetic than the others.]]

* InferredHolocaust: Luther's family is in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1919, the Greenwood neighborhood was widely known as a thriving black community, with many black-owned businesses, lavish homes, a fire department, hospitals, movie theaters, etc. It was popularly known as the "Black Wall Street"... for another two years, at least. The novel doesn't make it to 1921, but a little research into the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsa_race_riot Tulsa Race Riot]] will put a ''huge'' damper on the ending. Luther just ''cannot catch a frickin' break.''
