Detectives Alan Banks and Annie Cabbot
return in another electrifying novel from the acclaimed
award-winning author of the New York Times
Friend of the Devil
body of a man is discovered hanging from a tree in the
near Eastvale, all signs point toward suicide. At least
that's what it initially looks like to Detective
The man is soon identified as Mark
Hardcastle, the set and costume designer for the local
amateur theater company. Mark was successful and well
in the community, but enough remains mysterious about his
background that suicide isn't completely out of the
question. But when Mark's older and wealthier lover is
discovered bludgeoned to death in his home, Annie begins
think differently. Could it have been a crime of passion,
did overwhelming grief lead to a man taking his own life?
Increasingly confounded, she calls in the vacationing
Inspector Alan Banksâ€”even if it means prying him away
his new girlfriend.
Once on the investigation,
Banks finds himself plunged into a case where nothing is
it seems. More and more his own words about the victim's
latest production, Othello, are coming back to
him, for "jealousy, betrayal, envy, ambition, greed,
revengeâ€”all the colors of darkness" are quickly becoming
world as well.
