It was a job Miami private investigator Max Mingus found hard to refuse: $10 million to locate billionaire's son, Charlie Carver - missing now for over three years.
Young Charlie disappeared on the island of Haiti, where over the decades scores of children have vanished. In a country dominated by voodoo, rumours abound of black magic and a mythical figure called "Mr Clarinet", who for years has been tempting children away from their families.
But could the truth be even more sinister than the legend?
To find out, Max will have to succeed where previous detectives have not only failed - but died. All of a sudden, this job isn't just about finding Charlie or his killers for the money - it's about staying alive...

Nick Stone is the author of Mr. Clarinet, winner of the Crime Writers' Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger in 2006 and both the International Thriller Writers Award for Best First Novel and the Macavity Award in 2007. He lives in London and Miami with his family.
Jeff Harding's audiography includes reading the bestselling titles "Kane and Abel, The Da Vinci Code, The Bourne Identity", and "Secrets Of The Code". On screen, he has appeared in "Lightning Strikes, Alfie, Tomorrow Never Dies, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Hackers", and "Bullseye"! His television work includes the UK and Irish comedies "The Armando Iannucci Shows, The Fast Show, "and "Father Ted".
Stone's adrenaline-packed debut is not for the faint of heart. Max Mingus, an ex-Miami cop and PI, wants to get his life back on track after a seven-year stint in Attica for the execution of three child molesters. Grudgingly agreeing to investigate the disappearance of Charlie Carver, the three-year-old son of a wealthy white Haitian family, Max finds himself thrown headfirst into the violent, corrupt world of Haiti in the mid-1990s. Max's search leads him from the sprawling Carver compound to Cité Soleil, the country's most notorious slum, pitting him against powerful drug baron Vincent Paul and the bloody legacy of the Carvers' rise to power. Stone veers too often into the explicitly graphic, with numerous extended torture scenes, but readers accustomed to the grittiest of pulp fiction won't be deterred. Stone, the son of British historian Norman Stone and a Haitian mother, vividly depicts a country and a man in turmoil. Despite an overabundance of plot elements, this thriller introduces a fresh voice that fans of hardboiled fiction won't want to miss. (June)
