Introduction

Now a New York Times Bestseller

Over 2 million copies of his books in print. The first and only author to win back-to-back Edgars for Best Novel. Every book a New York Times bestseller.

Since his debut bestseller, The King of Lies, reviewers across the country have heaped praise on John Hart. 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.

Our book club has read some of John Hart's books in the past so this was an easy choice. Most of us liked the book, but we had a few members that really couldn't get past the scene(s) in the church. ... (read more)

 
  "Good Story Teller"by [email protected] (see profile) 08/10/16

I really enjoyed this book. I didn't realize that this man had won the Edgar Award twice. The only author to ever do so. I had never read anything by this author before and I truly enjoyed this novel.... (read more)
