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.

Charlie Parker is the only man actually man enough to touch on this sensitive case - the disappearance of the daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. What's worst is that the accused man is black - something that is not taken lightly in the area, it's history displaying the enslavement of hundreds of black men and women. It's up to Charlie Parker to find the missing girl and clear the name of this innocent man, and to stay out of as much trouble as possible. But as always with Charlie Parker, no such thing would ever be allowed...
Sensational follow up to best selling novel The Killing Kind, The White Road is nothing short of astounding. I am yet to meet a person who has read these books and disliked them.
