Ari's opinion:An excellent

Ari's opinion:
An excellent book, all the more surprising as it deviates from the traditional LeHane thriller/detective story, The Given Day is an imposing social fresco of post-WW1 Boston, especially its police department and its struggle for better working conditions. But first and foremost, The Given Day is a priceless story of friendship between two men that nothing would originally have brought together, except for sheer chance in life.
