The Ridetells the true story of one of the most gruesome crimes in recent memory-the 1997 abduction and murder of ten-year-old Massachusetts resident Jeffrey Curley-and how his father, Bob Curley, managed to heal the deep wounds of rage and emerge to become an outspoken critic of the death penalty. In vivid, compelling prose, Boston Globereporter Brian MacQuarrie recounts the brutal crime that shocked New England and chronicles what transpires after Jeffrey's death, which is nearly as shocking as the crime itself. At the heart of this deeply touching story is the way Bob Curley summons the almost superhuman courage to reject the death penalty. In tracing his personal journey, The Ridepresents an appealing everyman hero forced into the spotlight by unfathomable circumstances, and compelled to confront the consequences of his fury.
