As the two narratives converge, father and son must face shocking new insights into themselves, each other, and their own responsibility for what has happened.In the final chapter we catch a fleeting glimpse of how this family may ultimately be able to heal. By dispassionately confronting the unspeakable, Brutal Music moves beyond the headlines to forge a compelling portrait of our violent crime culture in our baffling times.
