John Connolly thrilled
readers with his bestselling novels, Every Dead Thing, Dark Hollow, and The Killing Kind. Now he delivers spellbinding suspense as
Charlie Parker races to unravel a brutal crime committed in the Deep South.
After years of suffering unfathomable pain and guilt over
the murders of his wife and daughter, private detective Charlie Parker has
finally found some measure of peace. As he and his lover, Rachel, are awaiting
the birth of their first child and settling into an old farmhouse in rural
Maine, Parker has found the kind of solace often lost to those who have been
touched by true evil.
But darkness soon descends when Parker gets a call from
Elliot Norton, an old friend from his days as a detective with the NYPD. Now
practicing law in Charleston, South Carolina, Elliot is defending a young black
man accused of raping and killing his white girlfriend, the daughter of a
powerful Southern millionaire. Reluctantly, Parker agrees to help Elliot and by
doing so ventures into a living nightmare, a bloody dreamscape haunted by the
specter of a hooded woman and a black car waiting for a passenger who never
arrives. Beginning as an investigation into a young woman’s death, it is a
fast-moving descent into an abyss where forces conspire to destroy all that
Parker holds dear.
Hailed as a master storyteller, Connolly has once again
delivered a riveting and suspenseful story that draws listeners toward the
horrifying crossroads of the past and present, of the living and the dead. As
chillingly as it is beautifully rendered, The
White Road is sure to tread a frightening path for even the most
world-weary crime fiction fan. Download and start listening now!
