Description

The first and only author to win back-to-back Edgars for Best Novel. Every book a New York Times bestseller. After five years, John Hart is back. Since his debut bestseller, The King of Lies, reviewers across the country have heaped praise on John Hart, comparing his writing to that of Pat Conroy, Cormac McCarthy and Scott Turow. Each novel has taken Hart higher on the New York Times Bestseller list as his masterful writing and assured evocation of place have won readers around the world and earned history's only consecutive Edgar Awards for Best Novel with Down River and The Last Child. Now, Hart delivers his most powerful story yet. Imagine: A boy with a gun waits for the man who killed his mother. A troubled detective confronts her past in the aftermath of a brutal shooting. After thirteen years in prison, a good cop walks free as deep in the forest, on the altar of an abandoned church, a body cools in pale linen... This is a town on the brink. This is Redemption Road. Brimming with tension, secrets, and betrayal, Redemption Road proves again that John Hart is a master of the literary thriller.

Professional reviews

"Scott Shepherd's slightly overwrought narration complements this audiobook. His deliberately slow pace keeps listeners on edge as the complex plot focuses on rape and other forms of violence against women. Elizabeth Black, an emotionally damaged cop, is facing criminal charges after being accused of going overboard in her killing of the men who held a young woman captive in a basement and raped her. Black also is obsessed with Adrian Wall, an ex-cop just getting out of prison, where he was tortured by the staff. A young boy, meanwhile, harbors thoughts of killing Wall, and someone is kidnapping women. This is a dark book, made all the darker by Shepherd's stagy interpretation.
