The Wolf In Winter

John Connolly

Prosperous, a small town in the depths of Maine, shuns outsiders. It guards its own.

The community of Prosperous, Maine, has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children’s future secure. It keeps outsiders out. And its secrets in. At the heart of the town lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders.

But the death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal, private investigator, Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, rage, and the desire for vengeance. The town, and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have faced in their long history. And in the comfortable, sheltered inhabitants of a small Maine community, Parker will encounter his most vicious
enemies yet.

Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive. Prosperous, and the secret that it hides beneath its ruins…
