Synopsis: A young John Jordan confronts the Atlanta Child Murderer and meets one of the greatest detectives to ever carry a badge. Go back to the very beginning with one of crime fiction's most fascinating and unique detectives. INNOCENT BLOOD -- the 7th in the popular, award-winning, and critically-acclaimed John Jordan mystery series. With a Special Introduction by Michael Connelly Every great character has a past. Few are as entertaining, as thrilling, or as tragic as that of ex-cop turned prison chaplain John Jordan. When he was twelve years old he came face to face with the man who would be convicted of the Atlanta Child Murders. Six years later, John returned to Atlanta determined to discover who was truly responsible for all the slaughtered innocents. But first he must ascertain whether or not LaMarcus Williams belongs on the infamous list of missing and murdered children. The questions in the case are many, the answers few. Who Killed LaMarcus Williams? How was he abducted from his own backyard while his mom and sister watched him? Is he a victim of the Atlanta Child Murderer that didn't make the list or is his killer still out there, still operating with impunity? Experience the events that shaped one of the most unique characters in all of crime fiction. Accompany John during his first spiritual awakenings, his first battles with alcoholism, his first forays and fallings into love, and his very first murder investigation. Get answers and gain insight into the investigator, the minister, the man. See how John Jordan took his first faltering steps toward becoming the man he is today. Every great character has a past, but it's not often you're allowed to witness it the way you will John Jordan's in the portrait of a detective as a young man that is Innocent Blood. "Michael Lister is a giant talent with a unique vision. His landmark John Jordan Mystery series is a treasure of contemporary literature." Florida Weekly
Review: Publisher's Weekly Starred ReviewLister provides a plausible backstory for his unusual clergyman sleuth in the seventh John Jordan mystery (after 2014's Rivers to Blood), a prequel. When Jordan was 12, in 1980, he encountered Wayne Williams, the man who would be publicly identified as the Atlanta Child Murderer. After high school, Jordan moves to Atlanta, where he focuses on the murder of a boy who wasn't on the official list of Williams's victims. Lister gives fair clues for the surprise solution, thus combining a compelling account of his hero's spiritual struggle with a top-notch whodunit.
