Description

With his first novel The Blue Edge of Midnight, Jonathon King was praised for his "powerful storytelling" (San Diego Union-Tribune), for his "stunning" and "superb" writing (Pittsburgh Tribune), and for adding "new dimensions to the modern crime novel" (Michael Connelly). And, in a starred review, Publishers Weekly compared King to James Hall, Robert Parker, and James Lee Burke. Now, in A Visible Darkness, King delivers another gripping, unforgettable story. Max Freeman is seeking refuge from the familiar demons of his former life as a Philadelphia police officer, in his secluded shack deep in the Everglades. But his self-imposed isolation is inter-rupted when he receives a desperate call from his best friend, attorney Billy Manchester. There has been a recent string of suspicious deaths-all elderly women, all from a poor neighborhood, and all with sizable and recently sold-off insurance policies-which the police have been unable, or unwilling, to investigate. Billy believes something sinister may be at work, and so, to help his friend, Max must reluctantly pry where he's not wanted, and act like the cop he's trying to forget he was. To discover an unseen killer, Max will confront not only the dangers of a forgotten Florida cityscape, but the unexpected and dark corners of his own past as well. Filled with twists, turns, and a breathtaking evocation of a rarely glimpsed underside of modern America, A Visible Darkness confirms Jonathon King's place at the forefront of a new generation of crime novelists.show more
