Description
INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • A tense and atmospheric standalone thriller about two brothers, one small town, and a lifetime of dark secrets, from the bestselling author of the Harry Hole novels.
“I read The Kingdom and couldn’t put it down ... Suspenseful ... Original ... This one is special in every way.”—Stephen King, acclaimed internationally bestselling author
Roy and Carl, brothers from a small mountain town, have spent their whole lives hiding from the darkness in their pasts—Roy by staying put and staying quiet, and Carl by running far away. Roy believed his little brother was gone for good. But Carl has big plans for his hometown. And when he returns with a mysterious new wife and a business opportunity that seems too good to be true, simmering tensions begin to surface and unexplained deaths in the town’s past come under new scrutiny. Soon powerful players set their sights on taking the brothers down by exposing their role in the town’s sordid history. But Roy and Carl are survivors, and no strangers to violence. As the town’s long-buried past begins to surface, Roy will be forced to choose between his own flesh and blood and a future he had never dared to believe possible.
