The Number One bestseller, now out in paperback.

Jerome Burnel was once a hero. He intervened to prevent multiple killings and in doing so damned himself. His life was torn apart. He was imprisoned, brutalized.

But in his final days, with the hunters circling, he tells his story to private detective Charlie Parker. He speaks of the girl who was marked for death but was saved, of the ones who tormented him, and an entity that hides in a ruined stockade.

Parker is not like other men. He died, and was reborn. He is ready to wage war.

Now he will descend upon a strange, isolated community called the Cut, and face down a force of men who rule by terror, intimidation, and murder.

All in the name of the being they serve.

All in the name of the Dead King.

'One of the writer's finest achievements . . . new readers - start here' Independent
'A consistently excellent series . . .a dizzying ride to hell and back' Sunday Herald
'Magical, horrific, poetic, gothic. Unique and rewarding' Maxim Jakubowski

Anmeldelser

«A beautifully realised tale . . . With A Time of Torment, the series sees possibly its strongest volume yet - if you weren't a fan of Parker before, you will be after reading this

Mass Movement

«Fascinating and bone-chilling . . . a beast of a good read and it has a whopping thumbs up from me»

Liz Robinson, Lovereading

«A story that grips you on the first page, and ends with a major jolt . . . Connolly seems to effortlessly juggle about seven different plotlines without ever losing the reader, and combines some seriously scary scenes with pithily expressed insights into human nature.»
