‘The finest crime series currently in existence’ – Independent on Sunday

His client is dead. But Charlie Parker will not rest . . .

The community of Prosperous, Maine, has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children’s future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own.

The death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him the town and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have faced in their long history, and in the comfortable, sheltered inhabitants of a small Maine town, Parker will encounter his most vicious opponents yet.

Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.

Reviews

The finest crime series currently in existence
<i>Independent on Sunday</i>
The finest crime series currently in existence.
Independent on Sunday
Superb . . . this thriller underlines just how fine a writer Connolly has become.
Daily Mail
You may think at times you are reading a literary novel but then Connolly will remind you he's just as adept at the violent strategies of the thriller. Either way you will be left shaken by the experience.
<i>Daily Express</i>
Connolly's writing is poetic, mystical - and almost impossible to put down
<i>Woman & Home</i>
Skilful at humour and building suspense, Connolly's writing is also poignant and at times downright beautiful
<i>Sunday Business Post</i>
Few thriller writers can create a sense of menace and evil as deftly as Connolly does. Compelling.
<i>Irish Independent</i>
Contains Connolly's usual brilliance with plot, dialogue, setting, humour and writing that is at times poetic
Independent on Sunday
Connolly's writing is a cut above the rest, and the presence of the supernatural on the margins of the story gives it a tense, oppressive edge.
