"Books are the ever burning lamps of accumulated wisdom." William W. Curtis

John Connolly elegantly describes life in a small town in Maine after a teenage girl, Anna Kore, goes missing.

Randall Haight is a private person. He doesn't want his past known because when he was age fourteen, he and a friend murdered a teenage girl.

After serving eighteen years in prison, he was released. The records were sealed and Randall and his friend were given new identities.

Someone has been mailing pictures to him that show the barn door where he and his friend murdered the girl.

With Anna Kore missing, Randall doesn't want to go to the authorities because he thinks the'll automatically think of him as a suspect. He hires Charlie Parker to put a stop to it.

Parker has been haunted by the death of his own daughter but takes the case because Haight's attorney suggests that the person harassing Haight might be Anna's kidnapper.

There are a number of parallel story lines that merge together in a tidy conclusion with  some interesting twists and surprises which add to the reader's enjoyment.

Although not one of Connolly's best, I did enjoy the story and feel that Connolly is a fine literary talent.
