"Two Rand family traditions: naming children after dog breeds, and stealing without violence. Five years ago, however, Collie Rand killed eight people, including a nine-year-old girl. Now on death row, just days away from his final hour, Collie wants to tell his brother Terry something important. Terry (short for "terrier"), who moved out west to pursue an honest life, wants nothing to do with his dysfunctional family, but finds himself returning home anyway. As it turns out, Collie's not guilty of one of the murders he was sentenced for, and Terry's resolved to find out what really happened that day. Peopled with unforgettable criminals (the kind you can't help but like), The Last Kind Words is atmospheric and bleak."

Wow! I could not put this book down. Great characters, riveting story. If you liked Lehane's The Given Day, you will like this book!
