Hades

By Russell Andrews (Mass Market, 2008)
Police Chief Justin Westwood is content to escape his big-city past in sleepy East End Harbor, but the brutal murder of a Wall Street shark is about to change all that--not least because Westwood was in bed with the victim's wife at the time.

National bestselling author Russell Andrews returns with an intricately layered novel of suspense, as Justin Westwood tries to clear himself of involvement in murder while a multinational financial conspiracy brings destruction in its wake. Westwood is willing to do whatever it takes to solve this crime, even if it means teaming up with an FBI agent who once broke his heart.
A trail of dead bodies draws him back home to Providence, RI, where he must deal with his own personal demons as well as reconnect with troubling memories of the past. Here he will discover a complex corporate scam with unimaginably murky depths, and at the heart of it an evil, scheming intelligence and a deadly temptress whose greatest joy lies in human suffering and death. HADES is a dark and atmospheric tale of obscene wealth and sadistic violence, opposed by one flawed but honorable man.

  • For ICARUS:
    "Like the master, Alfred Hitchcock, Russell Andrews delights in placing his unsuspecting regular guy heroes in nasty situations. And like the master, he knows how to manipulate the reader in fiendishly exciting ways. I defy you to figure out whodunnit, why they dunnit, or how they dunnit." (Janet Evanovich).
