Jo Nesbo, the author of the bestselling Harry Hole crime series, is back with a vivid psychological thriller about the bond between orphaned brothers. How far would you go to be your brother's keeper?

Roy has never left the quiet mountain town he grew up in, unlike his little brother, Carl, who couldn't wait to get out and escape his troubled past. Everyone thought Carl was gone for good, but he has big plans for his hometown. And when he returns with a mysterious new wife and a business opportunity that seems too good to be true, simmering tensions begin to surface and unexplained deaths in the town's past come under new scrutiny. Powerful players soon set their sights on taking the brothers down by exposing their role in the town's sordid history. But Roy and Carl are survivors and no strangers to violence. As the body count rises, though, Roy's loyalty to family is tested, as when he finds himself inextricably drawn to his brother's wife, Shannon, an attraction that will have devastating consequences. Roy's world is coming apart, and soon there will be no turning back. He'll be forced to choose between his own flesh and blood and a future he had never dared to believe possible.

As psychologically acute as it is disturbing, with plot twists you never see coming, Jo Nesbo's new novel is the work of a master of noir at the top of his game.

About the Author

JO NESBO is one of the world's leading crime writers, which he claims only partially compensates for having a promising soccer career abruptly terminated when he tore ligaments in both knees at the age of eighteen. After he studied economics and financial analysis, he worked as a stockbroker by day and played with the band Di Derre (Them There) at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat. His previous novels, which include The Thirst, Police, Phantom and The Snowman and six others, have sold over 50 million copies worldwide. He is also the author of several standalone novels, including Macbeth, his reinvention of Shakespeare's play, and the Doctor Proctor series of children's books. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel.
