Still recovering from his life-threatening wounds, private detective Charlie Parker investigates a case that has its origins in a Nazi concentration camp during the Second World War.
Parker has retreated to the small Maine town of Boreas to regain his strength. There he befriends a widow named Ruth Winter and her young daughter, Amanda. But Ruth has her secrets. Old atrocities are about to be unearthed, and old sinners will kill to hide their sins. Now Parker is about to risk his life to defend a woman he barely knows, one who fears him almost as much as she fears those who are coming for her.
His enemies believe him to be vulnerable. Fearful. Solitary.
But they are wrong. Parker is far from afraid, and far from alone.
For something is emerging from the shadows . . .
|I have to say this was one of the better books in the series. Charlie is recovering from the last book and Sam his daughter is staying with him for a little while. Sam can also communicate with Charlie’s first daughter who has passed away. This just adds to the story. This story is focused on the WWII at the end of the war and the Germans who were in charge of the death camps and the Nazi war criminals that got away. It also goes into the searching for the people that they have not found yet. Once again Charlie ends up in the middle but it is because of him that some of the crimes are even looked at. This is a very through story with some twists and turns that will surprise you the reader. Charlie sidekicks are still around and make their presence felt once again along with Sam’s mother. Overall a very good book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
