The community of Prosperous, Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children's future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own. And at the heart of Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders of the town... 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, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him 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 town, Parker will encounter his most vicious opponents yet. Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.

I like John Connolly's 'Charlie Parker' books. Have read his books over the years and must say this is one of his best. Loved the story line, with a very good narrator to make it enjoyable to listen to.

Thought it was getting good but then it didn't
Had four hours left and gave up. I felt there were too many threads of story with not enough substance to any. Nine were a real lead story and the character building was not very good. In fact I would be hard pressed to remember any names let alone detail of any character.
