Publisher Description

A pulse-pounding thriller featuring Detective Charlie Parker from the bestselling author of The Wrath of Angels.

'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.

Must read instalment of the Bud Parker saga

As a long-time fan of the Charlie Parker novels, this was a fantastic read. The book provides some significant hints of the wider mythology behind the books and the direction in which Parker's journey will take in future novels. It has always been suggested that Parker's life is part of a much bigger picture and this book begins to provide more of an insight into that picture.

As always, the involvement of Angel and Louis provides the book with some fantastic dialogue and dark humour.

Overall the book provided shocks, surprises and some extremely emotional moments; and left me eagerly anticipating the next instalment of the Charlie Parker series.
