EVIL TAKES MANY FORMS. PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR CHARLIE PARKER HUNTS THEM ALL. It is 1997, and a serial killer is on the loose in Burdon County, Arkansas. But no one wants to admit it, not in the Dirty South. In an Arkansas jail cell sits a former NYPD detective, stricken by grief. Charlie Parker is mourning the death of his wife and child, and searching in vain for their killer. He cares only for his own lost family. But that is about to change . . . From the number one Sunday Times and multi-million-copy bestselling author John Connolly comes the most compelling and unsettling thriller yet - witness the making of Charlie Parker. The Charlie Parker novels can be read and enjoyed in any order. The Dirty South is the eighteenth book in this globally bestselling series.
