New York Times bestselling author Da Chen has said E.R. Fallon writes the kind of stories that “. . . we stay up all night to finish.”
Who dumped the boy’s body in this desolate part of the city and why? And why is he missing his spleen?
BODY IN THE BOX is the first book in a gripping new mystery series featuring three very different homicide detectives.
Detectives Dino Cooper and Terry Jackson have been partners and friends for years. Now a new detective is drafted in to join them: Rebecca Everhart. They must quickly learn to work together on the biggest case of their careers, the disturbing discovery of the ‘Body in the Box’, as it’s known by the captivated media and the city’s worried citizens.
The case takes the three detectives deep inside the lives of Newark’s insular Eastern European immigrant community and the world of unlawful medical practices. It also brings back an eerie childhood memory of Dino’s, where a boy from his neighborhood vanished and was never seen again.
What appears to be a straightforward, modern-day murder case has more to do with the past than the present, and the detectives come to a genuinely unnerving — and life-threatening — conclusion.
This gripping detective novel following the work and relationships struggles of the detectives will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins Dennis Lehane, or Lisa Unger.
