    This is a family memoir of a wild boyhood in Texas that led to the vicious murder of the author's brother. In 1968 the author's brother, Alan, was murdered by a notorious hit man. Alan was only thirty-one when he disappeared and for more than six months his family did not know what had happened to him, until his remains were found in a ditch in Texas. The eyewitness to the murder agreed to testify; even so, the hit man was acquitted with the help of the most famous criminal lawyer in America. The author, a trial lawyer himself, shares intimate details about his striving Jewish family that perhaps set Alan on a course for self-destruction, and the wrenching miscarriage of justice when Alan Berg's murderer went unpunished. The result is a raw and painful memoir that taps into the darkest human behaviors, a portrait of an iconic American place, and a true-crime courtroom murder drama.
