At 4:00 A.M. on March 13, 1964, a young woman returning home from her shift at a local bar is attacked in the courtyard of her Queens apartment building. Her neighbors hear her cries; no one calls for help. Unfolding over the course of two hours, "Good Neighbors" is the story of the woman's last night. It is also the story of her neighbors, the bystanders who kept to themselves: the anxious Vietnam draftee; the former soldier planning suicide; the woman who thinks she's killed a child and her husband, who will risk everything for her. Reveals a fascinating cross-section of American society in expertly interlocking plotlines.

I remember this case from when I was younger. I really enjoyed the authors take on what was going on with the other tenents. It really did capture the times very well. Hope to read more of his works.
