Product Details


“A perfect piece of entertainment.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

“With The Last Act, Parks conjures meth, murder, and musical theater into a remarkable turn of crime fiction magic.”
—Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author

The setup is so patient and the logistics so matter-of-fact that even the savviest readers will be caught in the story’s expertly laid traps before they know what’s happening.”

“A Brad Parks novel offers two pleasures. One is watching a stunning talent at work. The other—operating almost apart from the first—is getting wrapped in the coils of a fiendishly clever thriller.”

More Praise for Brad Parks and His Novels

“Parks has produced a gripping story, masterfully drawn.” (Editor’s Pick) on Closer Than You Know

“The novel’s final pages are exciting, surprising, and deeply moving. How moving? Its ending brought me to tears, and, where books are concerned, such moments are rare. . . . [Say Nothing] carries his work to a new level.” 
—The Washington Post 
“[Say Nothing] grips the reader from the get-go and doesn’t let up until the final twist in a story that’s filled with surprises.” 
—Associated Press 
“[A] real gem . . . Closer Than You Know [is] full of what makes a great novel great. Brilliant characters, as well as a plot line that will rattle your nerves with every page.”  
The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA)
“Another winning tale of domestic suspense from the Shamus– and Nero Award–winning author Parks, who knows how to get readers to empathize emotionally with his characters while amping up the tension and suspense from the first page.”
Library Journal (starred review) on Closer Than You Know
“A top-notch thriller . . . clever storytelling, pitch-perfect dialogue . . . His latest work reaffirms his stature as an adroit and accomplished author whose abilities shine brighter with each novel.”
–Richmond Times-Dispatch on Closer Than You Know
