The White Road Summary

The White Road: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 4 by John Connolly

In South Carolina, a young black man faces the death penalty for the rape and murder of Marianne Larousse, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. It's a case that nobody wants to touch, a case with its roots in old evil, and old evil is private detective Charlie Parker's speciality. But Parker is about to make a descent into the abyss, a confrontation with dark forces that threaten all that Parker holds dear: his lover, his unborn child, even his soul...For in a prison cell, a fanatical preacher is about to take his revenge on Charlie Parker, its instruments the very men that Parker is hunting, and a strange, hunched creature that keeps its own secrets buried by a riverbank: the undiscovered killer Cyrus Nairn. Soon, all of these figures will face a final reckoning in southern swamps and northern forests, in distant locations linked by a single thread, a place where the paths of the living and the dead converge. A place known only as the White Road.

The White Road Reviews

Praise for THE WHITE ROAD: 'One of the most distinguished practitioners of US crime-writing. The book synthesises literate, poetic writing with scarifying grue.' -- Independent 'Connolly has honed the private eye's instincts into a sensibility of palpable evil that makes a strong core to this intelligent thriller. An assured, sophisticated tale ... exciting but bittersweet.' -- The Times 'What makes Parker intriguing is precisely that, though a crusader against evil, he has a dark side: he is haunted by the past, his capacity for violence and guilt.' -- Telegraph Magazine ... his imagination is undeniably fertile ... a powerful piece of American gothic with an arresting double ending.' -- The Sunday Times 'One of the fastest-paced and most complex thrillers ... A cracking read from an excellent and highly original writer... pacy, blackly humorous and with a nasty edge.' -- Sunday Independent, Dublin 'Dark, menacing, yet at times almost poetic, The White Road enthrals ... literate, yet fast-paced' -- Cambridgeshire Journal 'A wonderfully written literary work ... A must read for Parker fans, and fans of well written prose. -- Deadly Pleasures 'Consummate crime writing and chilling suspense' -- Crime File 'Another masterpiece' -- Belfast Telegraph
