‘This man is incapable of writing a mediocre book. All are, without doubt, first class.’ –

R.J. ELLORY Untitled

The powerful new thriller from the bestselling author of A Quiet Belief in Angels. When Special Agent Michael Travis is posted to the small town of Seneca Falls, Kansas, to investigate the mysterious death of a man at a travelling show, he is plunged into the weird and wonderful world of the Carnival Diablo. Led by the elusive Edgar Doyle, the carnival folk range from the enigmatic to the bizarre, but none of them will give Travis a straight answer to his questions. As Doyle and his companions challenge Travis’s unshakeable faith in solid facts and hard evidence, it emerges that this case is not as straightforward as it at first appeared. Can Michael open his mind to a truth that is beyond comprehension? And will he be able to set his own beliefs aside to solve a mystery that threatens to overthrow everything he has ever had trust in? R.J. Ellory’s novels have been translated into 26 languages, and he has won numerous awards including the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year for A Simple Act of Violence.
