About the Book

No one cries when the body of an old man is laid to rest in Louden Park cemetery in south Baltimore. His three sons continue with their intentionally separate lives, hardly grieving their dead father. But recent events stir up memories of the past, and dark secrets begin to surface in Cathedral Street, an epic novel of a family torn apart by greed, cruelty, and revenge.

Each brother in the Miller family pursues his own version of happiness. Tommy is a struggling prizefighter who longs for respect. Jerry is a priest immersed in helping others who are less fortunate. Buddy is determined to rise out of poverty and build a life of luxury and wealth.

As hard as they try to remain distanced from each other, the Miller brothers soon become hopelessly entangled in a web of deceit, revenge, and horrific crime. When a tenacious Baltimore homicide detective gets involved, he threatens to forever destroy the lives of Buddy Miller and his family. As Cathedral Street reaches its spellbinding conclusion, it becomes starkly clear that the past can never really be forgotten, and the future is always terrifyingly uncertain.
