SHADOW MEN by JONATHON KING
A gripping new chapter in the Max Freeman series, from the
critically acclaimed, Edgar Award--winning author of The
Blue Edge of Midnight.
It begins with an 80-year-old mystery. Three men—a father
and his two sons—vanished while working as laborers on a
dangerous project to build the first road through the
Florida Everglades. Now, years later, a series of letters
are unexpectedly discovered by a descendant of these men.
Driven by the need to know what happened to these lost
members of his family, he starts asking questions—and is
quickly stonewalled. With nowhere else to turn, he enlists
the help of former Philadelphia police officer Max Freeman.
Living in his isolated shack in the Glades, Max starts his
longshot investigation into the fate of the men. A newly
minted private investigator working with his friend and
attorney, Billy Manchester, Max is surprised to meet
resistance immediately at every turn. The search for the
truth quickly turns violent—and Max finds he has more to
worry about than just 80-year-old ghosts. For there are
powerful interests that want to make sure that the shadows
of the past remain undisturbed—including some who will kill
to make sure that they do.
Combining powerful storytelling and rich characters, Shadow
Men establishes Jonathon King as a new master of modern
