Descrição da editora
Police Chief Justin Westwood is content to escape his big-city past in sleepy East End Harbor, but the brutal murder of a Wall Street shark is about to change all that--not least because Westwood was in bed with the victim's wife at the time.
National bestselling author Russell Andrews returns with an intricately layered novel of suspense, as Justin Westwood tries to clear himself of involvement in murder while a multinational financial conspiracy brings destruction in its wake. Westwood is willing to do whatever it takes to solve this crime, even if it means teaming up with an FBI agent who once broke his heart.
A trail of dead bodies draws him back home to Providence, RI, where he must deal with his own personal demons as well as reconnect with troubling memories of the past. Here he will discover a complex corporate scam with unimaginably murky depths, and at the heart of it an evil, scheming intelligence and a deadly temptress whose greatest joy lies in human suffering and death. HADES is a dark and atmospheric tale of obscene wealth and sadistic violence, opposed by one flawed but honorable man.
At the start of the pseudonymous Andrews's intelligent page-turner, his third Justin Westwood thriller (after Midas), Westwood, the police chief of the quiet Long Island community of East End Harbor, has just begun a torrid affair with Abigail Harmon, the stunning wife of a wealthy investor, when a late-night phone call informs him that her husband has been found brutally murdered. Placed in the uncomfortable position of being the widow's alibi as well as the prime suspect in the eyes of an ambitious local prosecutor angling for an eventual gubernatorial race, Westwood has a personal stake in tracking down the killer. The twisty plot provides the appealing Westwood with plenty of challenges, though his heroics sometimes border on the implausible (especially when he's battling a lethal team of Asian assassins). Under his actual name, Peter Gethers, Andrews is the author of several bestselling nonfiction books, including The Cat Who Went to Paris.
