Product description

Review

"A powerful, confident voice in the new true-crime memoir genre. There comes a moment when the reader realizes this is a not a search for a killer of children but a search for a cult of dangerous and powerful men and it shakes you to the core."--James Renner, author of True Crime Addict: How I Lost Myself in the Mysterious Disappearance of Maura

"A true crime story in the best possible sense, where chapter by chapter we converge on a surprising and unimaginable truth... Always deft, often sublime, Appelman uses his investigation to draw us into his personal journey through darkness, to light and life."--Chip Johannessen, Executive Producer of Dexter and Homeland

"J. Reuben Appelman becomes both Virgil and Dante, leading us through his own dark history and the history of his city while making the almost unbearably honest, compulsive demands of a roadside accident. Although 37 Winters can be painful to gaze at, it is far more dangerous to look away."--Michael Hoffman, Director of The Best of Me, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Last Station
