    DescriptionNothing ever happens in Versailles, Maine, Until a body is found in a cabin up by the lake. The dead man turns out to be from the Boston DA's office, a prosecutor who had been investigating a series of gang-related murders in that city. Ben Truman, Chief of Police, heads down to Boston to follow the few fragile leads he has in the case. Not welcomed by the police there, he knows he really should get the message and disappear back to the sticks. Big city crime is beyond anything he's ever dealt with before. But still Truman refuses to let it go. With the help of a retired cop who knows all the angles, he becomes embroiled in an investigation which has its roots in a sequence of deaths which began twenty years previously...

    Review quote
    "'A most assured debut, cleverly plotted with an unguessable ending'" Sunday Telegraph "'A compelling debut...Juicy characterisation and a strong affinity for moral ambiguity. It marks the blooding of a major new talent with shades of George Higgins and Scott Turow' " Guardian "An impressive and constantly surprising debut...The main plot twist knocks you sideways and there's more to come. A marvellous, unexpected novel." Time Out "'A mixture of poignant, literary Americana and dialogue driven suspense, this impressive debut novel delivers a well-judged final shock and left me looking forward to more from Mr Landay'" Morning Star "'A gripping and thrilling read which has you completely hooked from its rather violent and shocking opening and he has created a police chief as memorable as James Lee Burke's Dave Robineaux'" What's On In London
