Synopsis: With his first novel, the Shamus Award-winner The Innocents, and his acclaimed follow-ups, Bearing Secrets and The Ghosts of Morning, Richard Barre has emerged as "one of the best hardboiled detective novelists of the '90's" ( San Francisco Chronicle Book Review). Now, with Blackheart Highway, he takes the genre for the ride of its life. Southern California PI Wil Hardesty makes a living searching for the truth. But this search always seems to draw him back to his own troubled past, shadowed by loss. His latest case takes him into the life of Doc Whitney, a country music star who was found guilty of killing his wife and young daughters twenty years ago. Now Doc has been paroled. In a town divided over his release, two people with very different agendas recruit Wil. One wants Doc gone-permanently. The other is convinced of his innocence. Now Wil must reconstruct a life, and track down a killer. And survive...
