While investigating sinister threats against a man hiding a criminal past, detective Charlie Parker stumbles into a web of corruption and deceit involving the FBI, a doomed mobster, and a missing teenage girl.

Simon and Schuster
Darkly brilliant and intuitive private detective Charlie Parker returns in a thrilling story of unspeakable horrors—past and present—from internationally bestselling author John Connolly.

There are some truths so terrible that they should not be spoken aloud. Here is one of those truths: aft er three hours, the abduction of a child is routinely treated as a homicide.

When a girl disappears from a small Maine town, her neighbor—a recluse named Randall Haight—starts receiving anonymous letters that contain tormenting references to a different teenage girl, murdered long ago. For many years, Randall has kept a secret: when he was fourteen, he was convicted of killing that girl. Now, his former life has returned to haunt him, and he hires private detective Charlie Parker to make it go away. But in a town built on blood and shadowed by old ghosts, where too many of the living are hiding secrets, the past cannot be dismissed so easily. As Parker unravels a twisted, violent history involving a doomed mobster and his enemies, the police, and the FBI, his search returns again and again to Randall Haight. Because Randall is still telling lies. . . .

I didn't find it as compelling as his other Charlie Parker novels. But worth a read.

Good author who doesn't use his psychic references to simplify the resolution of his detective endeavours.

Everything that John Connolly does is good. This chapter of Charlie Parker was not up to standard. Even though I was not happy with this Title, Connolly is near the top of the food chain.
