“Cemetery Road is a power novel. Beginning to end, it never loses its grip . . . The book is a wonderful achievement” Michael Connelly
When Errol ‘Handy’ White returns to his native Los Angeles to attend the funeral of his old friend R.J. Burrow, who has been brutally murdered, a terrible secret threatens to reveal itself.
Twenty-six years earlier, Handy, R.J. and O’Neal Holden were three young thieves who pulled a heist that went horrible awry, and Handy’s been waiting for it to come back and haunt them ever since. Both the police and Holden, now a slick politician, believe R.J.’s death was the result of a bungled drugs deal, but Handy and R.J.’s widow can’t buy it.
Was R.J.’s killing totally unrelated to the tragedy lurking in the trio’s past? Or is something more sinister afoot? Handy won’t go back home until he has the answer – even if it means putting himself next in line for a bullet.
