"One of the brightest new stars in the thriller genre."
--Chicago Sun-Times

Nick Stone's first novel, Mr. Clarinet, took the crime fiction world by storm--winning enthusiastic raves ("Exquisite" --South Florida Sun-Sentinel; "A spellbinding thriller of the highest order" --Chicago Tribune) as well as a Macavity and a CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award. In The King of Swords, Stone brings back Detective Max Mingus in a chilling and mesmerizing "prequel" that combines murder, police corruption, and voodoo black magic. The King of Swords blazes with Miami heat--and it earns Nick Stone a permanent spot in the winner's circle alongside the masters James Ellroy, Dennis Lehane, James Lee Burke, Walter Mosley...and Stephen King.
