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.

Publishers Weekly, 2014-08-25 Connolly's absorbing 12th Charlie Parker novel (after 2013's The Wrath of Angels) finds the PI, based in Portland, Maine, still on the hunt for the serial killer known as the Collector, with his sidekicks-and comic relief-Angel and Louis in tow. Meanwhile, the seeming suicide of one of the city's better known homeless men, Jude, diverts his attention. Before Jude's death, Parker was intent on tracking down his estranged, wayward daughter, Annie, to try to reestablish a connection. The investigative trail leads to the wealthy, isolated town of Prosperous, Maine. Sparks-and bullets-fly when Parker starts poking his nose into the deeper secrets of Prosperous, where he finds out fast that some secrets are worth killing for. A compellingly flawed hero and a detail-rich plot make for another satisfying read, though the strong supernatural vein won't appeal to every crime fiction fan.
