City of Lies

By RJ Ellory

Published Jan 2010

Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Silver Dagger Award 2007

John Harper has just made a discovery; the father he believed to be dead for more than thirty years is alive, though lying in a coma in a Manhattan hospital. Returning home to New York brings with it memories of childhood, many of them painful, and yet Harper could never have prepared himself for the truth.

Confronted with the reality of his father’s existence, Harper finds himself seduced by a lifestyle that he seems to have inherited – an underworld life of power, treachery and menace.

As he desperately tries to uncover the facts of his own past, he is faced with one lie after another, and with each new discovery he becomes more and more entangled in a dark and shocking conspiracy.
