Detective Mary Joe Court returns in a twisted story of murder and lost identity in the sixth novel of New York Times’ bestselling author Chris Culver’s Joe Court series.
Joe was on a date when she got the call. A man’s body was found beside the picnic tables in a local park. He has abrasions on his knuckles and several cuts on his palms and forearms. The victim defended himself, but his opponent brought a gun to a fistfight.
At first, it looks like a simple case, but as Joe quickly discovers, it’s not.
The victim lives almost a thousand miles away. His wife says he’s in town to fish and camp, but he didn’t bring fishing tackle or a tent.
He came for an altogether different purpose.
As Joe investigates, she finds herself drawn into a dangerous world steeped in lies and deception. With every insight she gains and every clue she finds, she comes closer to solving her case. But with every second that passes, the people she’s hunting draw closer to their prey.
It’s a race with innocent victims as the prize. If Joe wins, she saves the day. If she loses, many will die…including her.
The Man in the Park is a gripping thriller with twists and turns galore. If you like Michael Connelly, James Patterson, or Lisa Gardener, you’re going to love Chris Culver’s Joe Court series. Check it out!
