Hailed as "one of the best" ( Toronto Sun ) writers of contemporary suspense fiction, international bestselling author John Connolly returns with an electrifying novel featuring his acclaimed private detective, Charlie Parker.
In South Carolina, a young black man faces the death penalty for the rape and murder of Marianne Larousse, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. It's a case that nobody wants to touch, deeply rooted in old evil -- and old evil is Charlie Parker's specialty. He's about to enter a living nightmare, a dreamscape of sorrow haunted by the murderous specter of a hooded woman, by a black car waiting for a passenger that never comes, and by the sinister complicity of both friends and enemies in Larousse's brutal death. Soon, all will face a final reckoning in an unearthly realm where the paths of the living and the dead converge. A place known only as the White Road.

Another spine chiller from John Connelly who channels Steven King in his plot and James Lee Burke (detective Dave Robicheaux) in his prose. As in his previous books, a relentless sense of dread permeates Charlie "Bird" Parker's efforts to overcome evil. Be warned... his stories are not for the squeamish, with a mood that is not just dark but midnight black. So keep the night light on.
