"Big, bold, and impossible to put down, Redemption Road had me from page one. John Hart is a master storyteller."

- Harlan Coben


Praise for Redemption Road


"People in publishing have always known that John Hart can flat-out write. His prose conjures comparisons with James Lee Burke in its sultry, melodious alchemy. With Redemption Road Hart has taken it to another level. The prologue is heart-wrenching and the chapters thereafter pull you in like matter to a black hole. Read this novel. And then go back and read all of his others. He’s that good."

- David Baldacci


"Every new John Hart novel is a credit to the written word. Over five books, he has raised the bar for commercial fiction, deftly blending the tension, pacing and suspense of the classic thriller with characters so richly drawn and prose so elegant that is stories are worthy of being called literature. After The Last Child and Iron House, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Hart's next offering. I was not disappointed. Redemption Road is a triumph."

–  Corban Addison

Internationally bestselling author of A Walk Across the Sun

"There’s no easier way to say it: Redemption Road is simply great writing."

- Brad Meltzer

"John Hart writes like a poet, and I couldn’t put down this novel, an utterly riveting story of crime and its profound ripple effects on the human psyche. I have long been a fan of John Hart, but in Redemption Road, he has topped himself."

- Lisa Scottoline

New York Times Bestselling Author of Corrupted

In this stellar crime thriller, Edgar-winner Hart (Iron House) explores the human capacity for resilience and trust in the face of heartbreaking betrayal ... Though Hart employs plot twists effectively, it’s his powerful, wounded but courageous lead whom readers will remember.

-Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"Hart unwinds another complex plot, rich in backstory but driven by a propulsive main narrative...Hart plays brilliantly on the tradition of the southern gothic, but his grasp of character gives this novel―and all his works―the extra dimension that extends his audience well beyond adrenaline junkies.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A two-time Edgar winner and a writer who's batting .1000 [1.000?] on New York Timesbest-sellers, Hart hasn't lost his touch."
