Los Angeles Times best-selling author Gar Anthony Haywood crafts this atmospheric thriller that unfolds 'with the tenacity and inevitability of Greek tragedy' (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Cemetery Road follows Errol 'Handy' White, a man whose past has come back to haunt him. Handy left his life as a Los Angeles thief behind over two decades ago, and is now laying low in the Twin Cities. But when he hears that his old friend R.J. Burrows has been murdered, Handy returns to the City of Angels for the funeral. Although evidence of R.J.'s murder points to a drug deal gone wrong, Handy suspects the murder is tied to a terrible secret'one both he and R.J. had kept for 26 years. This gripping tale highlights Haywood's 'remarkable eye for detail' (Booklist,starred review). Narrator JD Jackson deftly captures Haywood's haunting prose, which will linger in listeners' minds long after the final word.
