The crack of a handgun shatters the silence of a warm summer night.... A notorious local felon and former child magician vanishes, seemingly without a trace.... A corrupt police force applies a stranglehold to a failing town.... An ailing old man hatches a last-ditch plan to save the police department he once headed, and the community he still loves.... An outsider arrives, bearing a simple recipe for death that could destroy them all....

The town of Black Falls isn't dying so much as it is quietly fading away. No supermarket. No traffic lights. No hope. Donald Maddox has returned to his hometown after fifteen years, a man with no law-enforcement background -- indeed, no background at all -- who finds himself employed as an auxiliary patrolman on a local police force known to inspire more fear than trust in its citizenry. But when a brutal murder shatters the isolation of this forgotten place, both the local cops and Maddox appear to have something to hide. As the tightly-wound mystery that is Maddox's past begins to unravel, he finds himself ensnared in a deadly conspiracy that ultimately threatens his life, as well as the lives of those nearest him.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sallie | 2/15/2014

    " Another really good character story by Hogan with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. It's not always pretty, but Hogan sucks you in and makes you unable to put the book down. Love what he's written here. "

    " I just don't think you can do much with whodunnits. They are like working a jig-saw puzzle, maybe. Satisfying, but not really provocative or thoughtful. "

    " This book is really nothing exciting. It is your everyday cop novel, but nothing really happened. I kept wanting to be drawn into the story. It just never happened. "

    " I thought this book was amazing and am now obsessed with reading all his other books. I truly couldn't figure out whodunit until the last pages. The characters are all very rich and there are so many twists and turns, I literally didn't put it down until I was done. It turns our Chuck Hogan wrote The Town, which was a GREAT Boston movie, so I guess I slept on him more than a little. Can't wait to tear apart the rest of his books. "
