Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the national bestselling author of Bad Things Happen—the debut that Stephen King called a “great f***ing book”—comes a new crime novel that will blow readers away… 

ANTHONY LARK has a list of names—Terry Dawtrey, Sutton Bell, Henry Kormoran. To his eyes, the names glow red on the page. They move. They breathe. The men on the list were once involved in a notorious robbery. And now Lark is hunting them, and he won’t stop until every one of them is dead.

DAVID LOOGAN—editor of the mystery magazine Gray Streets—is living a quiet life in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with Detective ELIZABETH WAISHKEY and her daughter. But soon David and Elizabeth are drawn into Lark’s violent world. As Elizabeth works to track Lark down, David befriends Lucy Navarro, a reporter with a crazy theory about the case that threatens to implicate some very powerful people. And when Lucy disappears, David decides her theory may not be so crazy after all

Review:

"Set in 1998, this prequel to 2009's Bad Things Happen puts Dolan's gifts as a storyteller on full display. Series hero David Malone (who later becomes David Loogan) finds himself sitting in the Rome, N.Y., police station, the prime suspect in the investigation into the murder of Jana Fletcher, with whom he recently began an affair. David soon learns that Jana was involved with the Innocence Project, an organization committed to freeing the wrongly accused. Believing Jana's murder to have some connection with her investigation of Gary Dean Pruett, a man convicted of killing his wife, David searches out those involved in the Pruett case for answers. Throughout David is secretly followed by K, an elusive, homicidal deviant who wants to stop David from discovering the truth. That K doesn't just kill David right off doesn't really make sense — after all, he has few qualms about murder — but if you can look past this detail, you're in for a suspenseful ride.

David Loogans dark past is revealed in this prequel to Bad Things Happen—the critically acclaimed mystery that Stephen King called a “great fucking book.”
