The next pulse-pounding thriller in John Connolly's internationally bestselling Charlie Parker series.
The community of Prosperous,
Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are
wealthy, its children’s future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its
own. And at the heart of the Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient
church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the
founders of the town…
But the death of a homeless man
and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private
investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man,
driven by compassion, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him
the town and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have
faced in their long history, and in the comfortable, sheltered
inhabitants of a small Maine town, Parker will encounter his most
vicious opponents yet.
Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.
Prosperous, and the secret that it hides beneath its ruins…
