Internationally bestselling author John Connolly delivers a “scary, cerebral” (Publishers Weekly) thriller, featuring the tortured and brilliant Private Detective Charlie Parker.
That is the nature of revenge. It escalates. It cannot be controlled. One hurt invites another, on and on until the original injury is all but forgotten in the chaos of what follows.
Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has gone missing. His daughter insists that he killed himself after allegations surfaced surrounding the harm done to patients in his care.
Now, a killer obsessed with finding the truth about his own daughter's disappearance is seeking revenge-and private investigator Charlie Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth about Clay's disappearance to be revealed, and those who will go to any length-no matter the cost-to keep a deep, dark secret about a local town hidden.
