The Other Cheek
This is the fourth of a series of novels that revolve around JP Parker a 100 year old long time retired New York City private detective from the 30s, 40s, and 50s. The novels are his first person recollections as told to a young writer who is compiling them into book form. They deal with his most notable cases and the famous people who crossed his path. Parker is asked by an old friend to accompany him to Georgia to take care of the effects of his recently deceased brother. It doesn't take Parker long to realize that the relatively young brother didn't die of natural causes. Soon they're embroiled in a case that spans across the millennia all the way from the Vatican to New York to Georgia. What was the secret that his friend's brother was willing to die for and why are people from all over the world descending on one little southern town? And what is the surprising final twist that isn't revealed until the very last page?
