Publication: Hodder & Stoughton, 2020, London
First edition. Signed and dated by the author. Per John Connolly "Signed hardcover copies of THE DIRTY SOUTH, with the handsome Parker Investigations tote bag and a signed reproduction of an old Arkansas postcard." An excerpt from his August 2020 newsletter. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. It is 1997, and someone is slaughtering young women in Burdon County, Arkansas. No one wants to admit it, not in the Dirty South. In an Arkansas jail cell sits a former NYPD detective, stricken by grief. He is mourning the death of his wife and child, and searching in vain for their killer. He cares only for his own lost family, but that is about to change. Witness the becoming of Charlie Parker.
