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?

Roy has never left the quiet mountain town he grew up in, unlike his little brother, Carl, who couldn't wait to get out and escape his troubled past. Everyone thought Carl was gone for good, but he has big plans for his hometown. And when he returns with a mysterious new wife and a business opportunity that seems too good to be true, simmering tensions begin to surface and unexplained deaths in the town's past come under new scrutiny. Powerful players soon set their sights on taking the brothers down by exposing their role in the town's sordid history. But Roy and Carl are survivors and no strangers to violence. As the body count rises, though, Roy's loyalty to family is tested, as when he finds himself inextricably drawn to his brother's wife, Shannon, an attraction that will have devastating consequences. Roy's world is coming apart, and soon there will be no turning back. He'll be forced to choose between his own flesh and blood and a future he had never dared to believe possible.

As psychologically acute as it is disturbing, with plot twists you never see coming, The Kingdom is the work of a master of noir at the top of his game.
