Reed Arvin's previous novel, The Last Goodbye, was "the best
thing a thriller can be: suspenseful, intelligent, and well written"
(Harlan Coben), and had the critics raving:
People magazine stated, "You'll be hooked," and the New York Times
declared it "sultry, devious, adrenaline-boosting suspense." Now comes
a vivid and haunting tale of one man's search for the truth -- no
matter what the consequences.
Thomas Dennehy, senior prosecutor
in Davidson County, Tennessee, doesn't recognize Nashville anymore: a
decade of relentless immigration means cops are learning Spanish, and
the DA' s office is looking for Vietnamese translators. Thomas's latest
case is prosecuting Moses Bol, a Sudanese refugee who faces the death
penalty for killing a white woman in the Nations, a notorious, racially
charged part of town. Bol's conviction seems certain, until a
university professor claims Thomas sent the wrong man to the death
chamber in a previous case. The DA' s office is rocked to its core, but
within days another blow falls: a beautiful and brilliant anti-death
penalty activist mysteriously surfaces as Bol's alibi, claiming she was
with him at the time of the crime. Bol's case becomes a lightning rod
as protesters on all sides converge on Nashville and tensions threaten
Meanwhile, Bol's alibi has her own secrets -- and is
terrified of someone working behind the scenes to get what he wants --
even if it means murder.
Will Dennehy be able to piece things together before everything he believes about the law, and about justice, is torn apart?
Vivid with the emotional complexity that has become the hallmark of ReedArvin's work, Blood of Angels
is filled with nonstop action, impeccable detail, and unforgettable
characters, making this a novel that is impossible to resist.
