Synopsis of The Baltimore Boys
Until the Drama took place there were two branches of the Goldman family: the Goldmans of Baltimore and the Goldmans of Montclair.
The Montclairs, of which Marcus Goldman, author of “The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair” is a middle class family living in a small house in the state of New Jersey.
The Baltimores, prosperous and to whom luck has always smiled, inhabit a luxurious mansion in a neighborhood of the high society of Baltimore.
That was what they called Marcus Goldman and his cousins Woody and Hillel are called the Goldman Gang.
Three brilliant young men with dazzling futures ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal.
For years, Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the true and astonishing story of the Baltimore Boys.

The Baltimore Boys by Joël Dicker Review
It’s been a long time since I’ve read such a beautiful story that is, at the same time, so sad. I was thinking all the time about “The Three Musketeers”, “Twenty Years After” and “The Vicomte of Bragelonne”. It is, at heart, a story about a great friendship that ends tragically.
It’s one of those books that move you and, despite being sad, there are moments where you smile, or even laugh. There are fantastic characters; the best one being, from my point of view, Hillel. This extends to the secondary characters, such as Leo or Director Burdon.
The story is very well told.
