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.

sorry Paul Birchard, bring back Jeff Harding
no, not even slightly better, and I love the John Connolly tales on audio
it's yet another excellent John Connolly, and a great story about Louis' background, but I only know that because I've read the print version
Something about Paul Birchard's voice just didn't sit with me, I'm pleased he only narrated one of the Charlie Parker books!
I'll keep the book just so I have the full set, but I really can't listen to the narrator, he's stopped me listening to the books until I re-read the print version!
shame to change the narrator just for this book.
