Summary
Few tragedies compare with that of Linda Ives, whose teenage son and his friend were found mysteriously run over by a train. Ives' world darkened even more as she gradually came to understand that some in law enforcement had reasons of their own for not wanting the murders to be solved. The story of her betrayal quickly expands to involve government officials -- officials bound in a web of silence with drugs and blackmail, politics and murder at its core. It is a tale of multiple murders and of justice repeatedly and insidiously perverted. Because it is clear that Mrs. Ives' nightmare could have happened to anyone, this is a scary story from first to last, and its most frightening aspect, page after page, is that all of this story is true. The Boys on the Tracks is one of the most powerful works of nonfiction that will be published in 1999
