Publisher's summary

"Mr. Connolly’s slam-bang thriller is studded with memorable characters and boasts cliffhangers within cliffhangers." (The Wall Street Journal)

"Brilliant...Connolly is writing at the top of his game." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

The New York Times best-selling author of A Book of Bones and “one of the best thriller writers we have” (Harlan Coben, number one New York Times best-selling author) goes back to the very beginning of Private Investigator Charlie Parker’s astonishing career with his first terrifying case.

It is 1997, and someone is slaughtering young women in Burdon County, Arkansas.

But no one in the Dirty South wants to admit it.

In an Arkansas jail cell sits a former NYPD detective, stricken by grief. He is mourning the death of his wife and child, and searching in vain for their killer. Obsessed with avenging his lost family, his life is about to take a shocking turn.

Witness the dawning of a conscience.

Witness the birth of a hunter.

Witness the becoming of Charlie Parker.
