Randall Haight has a secret: when he was a teenager, he and his friend killed a 14-year-old girl. Randall did his time and built a new life in the small Maine town of Pastor's Bay, but somebody has discovered the truth about Randall. He is being tormented by anonymous messages, haunting reminders of his past crime, and he wants private detective Charlie Parker to make it stop.
But another 14-year-old girl has gone missing, this time from Pastor's Bay, and the missing girl's family has its own secrets to protect. Now Parker must unravel a web of deceit involving the police, the FBI, a doomed mobster named Tommy Morris, and Randall Haight himself. Because Randall Haight is telling lies.

John Connolly never fails to deliver when it comes to the Charlie Parker series. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good thriller with the odd bit of relief in the forms of Louie and Angel.
For a long-running series, this was actually a fresh injection to the waning interest I felt for it. Charlie is asked to accept a client without knowing his background as the lawyer knows there will be a big conflict of interest. A young girl has gone missing, so Charlie must forge ahead despite troubling reminders of his past.
