A son comes of age in a fiercely political world "You and your brother-you're all I've got!" This cry of anguish from his politician father's lips changed 16-year-old Tom Fleming's life. Set in Jersey City, where Frank Hague, the ultimate boss, ruled by fear and favor, Mysteries of My Father is a heart-searing exploration of fatherhood and sonship in a world where power was seemingly the final arbiter in everyone's life. The book opens with the mysterious return of a gold ring given to Fleming by his father and lost 30 years earlier when he was visiting the Argonne battlefield, where his father fought in World War I. The story received wide TV and print coverage, including People and the New York Times.
