Jo Nesbo, author of the bestselling Harry Hole crime series, is back with a vivid psychological thriller about the bond between orphaned brothers. How far would you go to be your brother''s keeper?

Before Roy''s father died in the car crash that also killed Roy''s mother, he told his teenaged son that it was his job to protect his little brother, Carl, from the world and from Carl''s own impulsive nature.

Which left Roy to pursue the quiet life he loved as a mechanic in the place where they grew up.

Then suddenly an older Carl is back, full of big plans to develop a resort hotel on the family land, promising that not only will the brothers strike it rich, but so will the town. With him is his fierce and beautiful wife, Shannon, an architect he met on his travels, a woman who soon breaks down the lonely Roy''s walls.
