About the book

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.

Contains Connolly's usual brilliance with plot, dialogue, setting, humour and writing that is at times poetic: "Now, as a chill rain fell on the streets, specks of light showed through the moth holes in the drapes, and they glittered like stars": only Connolly could sprinkle stardust on dingy drapes.
Few thriller writers can create a sense of menace and evil as deftly as Connolly does. Compelling.
Skilful at humour and building suspense, Connolly's writing is also poignant and at times downright beautiful
Contains Connolly's usual brilliance with plot, dialogue, setting, humour and writing that is at times poetic
Connolly's writing is poetic, mystical - and almost impossible to put down
[What] is so impressive [is] the fact that he's able to work poetic language into the thriller format . . . 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.
Superb . . . this thriller underlines just how fine a writer Connolly has become
The finest crime series currently in existence
