Charlie Parker is a private eye who, in this book, is working in a country bar in Maine following
events detailed in earlier books. He is haunted by what happened to his father who was a New York
policeman who killed himself having inexplicably shot two teenagers. This book tells of Parker's
search for the truth behind the events. In what I felt was an overlong telling, he becomes involved
in supernatural events as well as uncovering unsavoury details of the past involving his father's
colleagues. It all sort of hung together but was not that easy a read and I may not read the other
books I have by the same author.
