1st ed. A Fine, unread copy in dust jacket. This is the second novel in the Max Mingus series following the success of Mr Clarinet. When Detective Max Mingus and his partner Joe are called to the scene of a death at Miami's Primate Park, it looks like another routine - if slightly bizarre - investigation. Until two things turn up: the victim's family, slaughtered; and a partly digested tarot card in the dead man's stomach. The King of Swords. An increasingly bloody trail leads Max and Joe first to a sinister fortune-teller and her scheming pimp son, then to the infamous Solomon Boukman. Few have ever met the most feared criminal in Miami, but rumours abound of a forked tongue, voodoo ceremonies and friends in very high places. N° de ref. de la librería 017506
?One of the brightest new stars in the thriller genre.?
Nick Stone?s first novel, Mr. Clarinet, took the crime fiction world by storm?winning enthusiastic raves (?Exquisite? ?South Florida Sun-Sentinel; ?A spellbinding thriller of the highest order? ?Chicago Tribune) as well as a Macavity and a CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award. In The King of Swords, Stone brings back Detective Max Mingus in a chilling and mesmerizing ?prequel? that combines murder, police corruption, and voodoo black magic. The King of Swords blazes with Miami heat?and it earns Nick Stone a permanent spot in the winner?s circle alongside the masters James Ellroy, Dennis Lehane, James Lee Burke, Walter Mosley...and Stephen King.
Miami, 1981. Cocaine Central. Murder Capital, USA.
A city about to catch fire.
Detective Max Mingus and his partner, Joe Liston, are anticipating a routine murder investigation when they are called to the scene of death at Miami's Primate Park?until the victim's family is found slaughtered, and a partly digested tarot card, the King of Swords, is discovered in the victim's stomach.
A trail that's growing bloodier by the hour is leading Max and Joe to the most powerful criminal in Miami: the infamous Solomon Boukman. Few have ever set eyes on the evil, intensely feared enigma, but rumors abound of voodoo ceremonies, dark rites, and friends in very high places. Malevolence is running rampant in a city choking on hatred, rage, and official corruption?as Max races to discover the terrifying truth about Boukman before death's shadow reaches his own front door.
