Language: English . Brand New. At 4:00 A.M. on March 13, 1964, a young woman returning home from her shift at a local bar is attacked in the courtyard of her Queens apartment building. Her neighbors hear her cries; no one calls for help.Unfolding over the course of the two hours, Good Neighbors is the story of the woman s last night. It is also the story of her neighbors, the bystanders who kept to themselves: the anxious Vietnam draftee; the former soldier planning suicide; the woman who thinks she s killed a child; and her husband, who will risk everything for her. Revealing a fascinating cross-section of American society in expertly interlocking plotlines, Good Neighbors calls to mind the Oscar-winning movie Crash, and its suspense and profound sense of urban menace rank it with Hitchcock s Rear Window and the gritty crime novels of Dennis Lehane, Richard Price, and James Ellroy.

Katrina Marino is about to become America?s most infamous murder victim.
This is Katrina?s story, and the story of her killer.
It is also the story of Katrina?s neighbours, those who witnessed her murder and did nothing: the terrified Vietnam draftee; the woman who thinks she?s killed a child, and her husband who will risk everything for the truth; the former soldier planning suicide and the man who saves him. And others whose lives are touched by the crime: the elderly teacher whose past is catching up with him; the amateur blackmailer who?s about to find out just what sort of people he?s been threatening; the corrupt cop who believes he is God?s ?red right hand?.
Shocking and compassionate, angry and gripping, ACTS OF VIOLENCE is a sprawling, cinematic tour-de-force, a terrifying crime novel unlike any other.
'Dark, compelling and powerful; this is a book of real substance. Ryan David Jahn is a rare and fine talent.'
-- R. J. Ellory
