John Hart's debut thriller The King of Lies catapulted him onto the New York Times bestseller list, won him an Edgar nomination, and garnered tremendous acclaim from both critics and his literary peers. The Denver Post called it “…have-to-keep-reading suspense.” Publishers Weekly deemed it, “an exceptionally deep and complex mystery thriller.” And Pat Conroy raved, “Reads like a book on fire.” Now Hart delivers a moody, atmospheric, compulsively readable new tale that recalls the narratives of Raymond Chandler.
Adam Chase has just returned home to Rowan Country, North Carolina, but no one is rolling out the Welcome Wagon. Having left five years earlier, after narrowly being acquitted of murder, he has more than a few enemies around town. And when more dead bodies start turning up soon after his arrival, Adam is once more a suspect. Embroiled in the fight of his life, not just to prove his innocence, but to reclaim the life he lost so many years ago, Adam discovers the lengths to which people will go for money, family—and revenge.
