Once Lincoln Perry and Ed Gradduk were friends. Then Perry became a cop, Gradduk turned dangerous, and their friendship imploded. Now, Gradduk is dead. And Perry wants to use his PI license to prove that whatever else his childhood friend might have been, he wasn't a murderer.For the police, this case is over. The woman Gradduk is alleged to have killed can't tell her side of the story, and the building she entered with him has burned to the ground. But Perry is making connections to a wave of arson that struck Cleveland seventeen years ago-fires that lit up the dark secrets of two families, a local powerbroker, and at least one crooked cop. Now Perry and his partner can see ties between the past and present, between innocents and criminals-and sirens that keep playing...With an intense exploration of both character and crime, Sorrow's Anthem establishes Michael Koryta as one of the top young mystery writers in America today.

I've read several of Koryta's novels and I find them much fun to read . This story finds Lincoln Perry a P.I. re-connecting with a childhood friend only to see him killed. He makes it a personal vendetta to get to the bottom of his death and encounters several unscrupulous characters including some police.

Great instalment to the first book by this author. The plot is complex & full of real characters, good & bad. Lincoln Perry & Joe Pritchard are very different men but compliment & balance each other as they attempt to clear the name of Lincoln's best friend from childhood. Lincoln hasn't been welcome in the old neighbourhood since he sent his friend to prison years ago but old loyalties run deep & the past keeps re-surfacing as they make their way. Can be read as a stand alone book but is richer if you've read the first one.
