Redemption Road

A Novel

By John Hart
Narrated by Scott Shepherd / 15 hours 16 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation

Redemption Road

“Hart weaves several plotlines together in this masterful crime novel: the former cop serving hard time for a crime he didn't commit; the son who awaits the release of his mother's killer; the girl whose brutal attackers were tortured and assassinated; and Liz, the cop at the heart of all of these stories, who is, herself, wanted by the police. Like the best crime dramas, there are characters to love, characters to hate, outcomes to root for, and a resolution that readers will not foresee. This book should put John Hart on every reader's radar.”

The first and only author to win back-to-back Edgars for Best Novel. Every book a New York Times bestseller. After five years, John Hart is back.

Since his debut bestseller, The King of Lies, reviewers across the country have heaped praise on John Hart, comparing his writing to that of Pat Conroy, Cormac McCarthy and Scott Turow. Each novel has taken Hart higher on the New York Times Bestseller list as his masterful writing and assured evocation of place have won readers around the world and earned history's only consecutive Edgar Awards for Best Novel with Down River and The Last Child. Now, Hart delivers his most powerful story yet.

Imagine:

A boy with a gun waits for the man who killed his mother. A troubled detective confronts her past in the aftermath of a brutal shooting. After thirteen years in prison, a good cop walks free as deep in the forest, on the altar of an abandoned church, a body cools in pale linen…

This is a town on the brink.

This is Redemption Road.

Brimming with tension, secrets, and betrayal, Redemption Road proves again that John Hart is a master of the literary thriller.

“Big, bold, and impossible to put down, Redemption Road had me from page one. John Hart is a master storyteller.”

Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“John Hart writes like a poet, and I couldn’t put down this novel, an utterly riveting story of crime and its profound ripple effects on the human psyche. I have long been a fan of John Hart, but in Redemption Road, he has topped himself.”

Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author

Reviews

“A police officer with a tragic past, two children in peril, and a wrongly accused men—it all adds up to great story telling. Redemption Road is a thriller with a Southern gothic touch. With his trademark strength and deep insight, John Hart rolls out another masterpiece. His first female protagonist is a flawed woman; but the reader never doubts the goodness of her heart. Plan to set aside a good chunk of time. You will have a hard time putting this book down before you reach the stunning conclusion.”

Excelsior Bay Books

“John Hart loves the terrain where good people tough by nature or circumstance try to set things right while also rarely asking for help. Mix that with some very bad folks twisted by power and desire and you have the kind of riveting atmospheric story he's great at. Vivid characters determined to get to the bottom of things, breaking through their own reserve to join forces and protect the weak. Redemption Road is deeply engaging from beginning to end. This author has never disappointed me. I love the richness of his stories and the paths this characters chose to in fact achieve some kind of redemption for the powerless.”

[He] then imagined how the room would look if a stranger were looking down from above: the man with dead flowers, the boy with the gun. He told himself that fourteen years was man enough, and that he didn’t need to be any older to pull a trigger. But Gideon’s father wore his days like a faded suit, an empty man whose only passion rose from thoughts of his long-dead wife. He seemed alive enough then, but what use were flickers or hints?
