Howard gives readers her masterwork--a gorgeous, three-ring circus of a novel, enchanting, bawdy, profound. A society tramp kills a soldier toward the end of World War II, and Billy Bray, a swaggering county detective in Bridgeport, Connecticut, investigates. The echoes of the case will reverberate down the decades and into the lives of Bray's Irish-Catholic family. 15 line drawings.
