Not only is this a well constructed mystery; but John Hart's insight into the human psyche, complexities of dysfunctional families, human frailities, and difficulties of forgiveness encourage the reader to think and feel deeply about life and personal issues.
The newest by the author of King of Lies is just as good and the action rolls from beginning to end. Hart's fluid writing style makes all his characters sharp and realistic.
Adam Chase has been absent from his North Carolina home for several years but when he returns his past jumps out at him-literally and figuratively as he is attacked and acccused of past crimes. New murders occur that seem to put him further in the line of fire and volatile family relationships erupt.
Suspenseful and smooth, don't miss it.
