The Son

By Jo Nesbo and Don Bartlett
The Son by Jo Nesbo and Don Bartlett digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the author of the bestselling Harry Hole series comes an electrifying tale of vengeance set amid Oslo's brutal hierarchy of corruption.

“The crime author of the moment.”—The New York Times Book Review

Sonny Lofthus has been in prison for almost half his life: serving time for crimes he didn't commit. In exchange, he gets an uninterrupted supply of heroin—and a stream of fellow prisoners seeking out his Buddha-like absolution. Years earlier Sonny’s father, a corrupt cop, took his own life rather than face exposure. Now Sonny is the center of a vortex of corruption: prison staff, police, lawyers, a desperate priest—all of them focused on keeping him stoned and jailed. When Sonny discovers a shocking truth about his father’s suicide, he makes a brilliant escape and begins hunting down the people respons
ible for his and his father’s demise. But he's also being hunted, and by enemies too many to count. Two questions remain: who will get to him first, and what will he do when he’s cornered?

Don't miss Jo Nesbo's new thriller, Killing Moon, coming soon!

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I had this book a long time ago and never got around to reading it because a family member took it. I received it as a gift and finally got a chance to read it and I love it so much. Nesbø’s writing is different in this story than his Harry Hole series but this book is so good. It’s full of action, mystery, and a character who is fighting for the truth while on the run. Great read.”
