"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 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."--

“‘Oh, little one,’ he whispered, as he gently stroked her cheek, the first time he had touched her in fifteen years. ‘What have they done to you? What have they done to us all?’ ” In his latest dark and chilling Charlie Parker thriller, New York Times bestselling author John Connolly takes us to the border between Maine and Canada. It is there, in the vast and porous Great North Woods, that a dangerous smuggling operation is taking place, run by a group of disenchanted former soldiers, newly returned from Iraq. Illicit goods—drugs, cash, weapons, even people—are changing hands. And something else has changed hands. Something ancient and powerful and evil. The authorities suspect something is amiss, but what they can’t know is that it is infinitely stranger and more terrifying than anyone can imagine. Anyone, that is, except private detective Charlie Parker, who has his own intimate knowledge of the darkness in men’s hearts. As the smugglers begin to die one after another in apparent suicides, Parker is called in to stop the bloodletting. The soldiers’ actions and the objects they have smuggled have attracted the attention of the reclusive Herod, a man with a taste for the strange. And where Herod goes, so too does the shadowy figure that he calls the Captain. To defeat them, Parker must form an uneasy alliance with a man he fears more than any other, the killer known as the Collector. . . .

When his mentor's niece rips off a local criminal and disappears, former private detective Adam Park has little choice but to return from self-imposed exile to help track her down. As he commences his investigation, though, it becomes clear the troubled young woman was acting under the influence of a cunning and domineering boyfriend. Using cutting edge technology, Adam tracks the pair to Paris, where he learns not only are they in far more trouble than he first thought, but elements back home are also seeking revenge upon them. Forced to pursue them from the UK to Paris, then Paris to Asia, he will confront an international network of criminals for whom human life is nothing but another business commodity. If he is to survive, return the girl safely, and protect the people he cares for most, Adam must delve into the darkest recesses of his soul, and blur his previously-solid concepts of right and wrong. AUTHOR Q&A Q. This is your third book. What makes this different? A. My debut "His First His Second" was a serial killer thriller featuring an unusual British detective, then "Three Years Dead" saw a corrupt cop waking up from a murder attempt with no memory. Both were grounded in my home town of Leeds and the county of West Yorkshire, and while Twilight Burning does feature Leeds, and the story world from the first two, I have a real international mystery here. Q. Who will it appeal to? A. Anyone who liked my first two books, of course, but I think fans of most ongoing private detective series will enjoy this, so if you can't get enough of the Charlie Parker novels by John Connolly (Every Dead Thing, The Wolf of Winter, A Song of Shadows), or even the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child (Personal, Never go Back, Make Me) and Myron Bolitar by Harlan Coben (Live Wire, Drop Shot, Back Spin). I also love Dennis Lehane and his Kenzie and Genero series (A Drink Before the War, Gone Baby Gone, Darkness Take My Hand), and Dave Robicheaux created by James Lee Burke (Light of the World, The Glass Rainbow, The Neon Rain). Q. So you've taken a lot of inspirations from other PIs. A. Yes, but my creation Adam Park is not quite "there" yet. He isn't this expert private investigator, he isn't a super-human fighting machine, and he isn't quite able to kill people with impunity. I am trying to show the evolution of a "hard boiled" detective, so the series will see how he grows into the role of a tough-guy gumshoe, so I have also taken inspiration from classic PIs like Raymond Chandler and his Phillip Marlowe creation. Q. Jack Reacher vs Adam Park - who wins? A. To be honest, Jack Reacher would likely cream Adam in a one-on-one fistfight. At the moment, anyway. Adam knows how to fight, but he's more like the sort of guy the average Joe doesn't mess with rather than feared internationally. It's his willpower, his deviousness, and his commitment to his cause that sets him apart from his antagonists. Q. Is this a straightforward mystery with a fairly tough protagonist? A. No, it crosses into international crime and mystery, and there's something of a pulp element to it, in similar way that my novel "Three Years Dead" had. He is a British detective, under pressure from a vengeful organized crime boss, and pursues a girl who may be the victim of a kidnapping to Paris, then the trail leads to some very dark conspiracies. Q. Action-Adventure elements? A. Some. There's hand-to-hand combat, a bit of gunplay, an extensive chase sequence set around an exotic island. But it all leads to a healthy dose of vigilante justice and to something of an international conspiracy. Q. Is it the first in a series? A. I hope so. Yes. Yes it is. If people like it enough.
