Introduction

(In 1975 three young boys encounter a pair of roving child molesters who pass themselves off as policemen. Two of them escape, but ten-year-old Dave Boyle is not so fortunate and finds himself trapped in a four-day ordeal that changes his life forever. Mystic River is both a murder mystery and a novel of character. Like the very best fiction, it is, in the end, about many things: grief, sin, karma, hope and the lack of hope, and the countless ways in which past events continue to influence the present.

Description in Spanish: Cuano eran niños, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus y Dave Boyle eran amigos. Un día, un extraño coche se detuvo en su calle. Uno de los chicos subió al coche, pero los otros dos no lo hicieron. Y sucedió algo terrible, algo que acabó con su amistad y que les cambió a los tres para siempre.Veinticinco años más tarde, Devine trabaja de detective para el Departamento de Homicidios, Marcus es un ex convicto que tiene una tienda de barrio, y Boyle intenta salvar su matrimonio y mantener sus demonios a raya: demonios que le incitan a hacer cosas terribles.Mystic River ha sido llevada al cine por Clint Eastwood, protagonizada por Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon y Laurance Fishburne.
