As a small boy, Louis witnesses an unspeakable crime that takes the life of a member of his small, southern community. He grows up and moves on, but he is forever changed by the cruel and brutal nature of the act. Now, years later, someone is hunting him, targeting his home, his businesses, and his partner, Angel. The instrument of his revenge is Bliss, the most feared of assassins, a lethal killer of killers with a personal vendetta. Hardened by their pasts, Louis and Angel decide to strike back. But when they mysteriously disappear, their friends are forced to band together to find them. They are led by private detective Charlie Parker, a killer himself, a Reaper in waiting...and the harvest is about to begin.
Connolly creates a world where everyone is corrupt, and murderers go unpunished, but betrayals are always avenged. Mesmerizing, terrifying, and transfixing, The Reapers is yet another masterpiece from a proven talent.
