CRIMSON PARK is the second in the 'Park' trilogy, featuring detectives Mallory Dimante, Stan Wyld, and Jake Steiner  of the O.I.D., the On-Going Investigation Division of the Sacramento police department. Following their spectacular success in solving California’s worst serial killer case, Sacramento’s cold-case division detectives find themselves the toast of the town. Anxious to move on from the rampant publicity, they take on a simple missing person case.

But their search for missing Hollywood film director James Marston pitches them headlong back into the malevolent world of serial killer Ruby Everheart - and into the lives of the killer’s last intended victims, Michael and Jessie Cooper – who unknowingly possess a secret that will ensnare everyone in a deadly game of cat and mouse with an evil far worse than Ruby Everheart.

ANGEL PARK, the final book of C.J. Booth’s Park trilogy, is an edgy thrill ride to a heart-rending end that no one will see coming.

Detectives Stan Wyld, Jake Steiner and Mallory Dimante struggle to unravel the mystery of the murder and dismemberment of Hollywood film director James Marston but all they find are more mysteries…

Why has Anna Chase, an eleven-year-old middle-schooler living in a small town in New Jersey, seemingly partnered with Ilsa Pokovich, a 50 year-old California felon, to commit murder…

Why has the original detective on the Olive Park case remained quiet all these years…

And why does the answer to everything seem to lie in a stuffed bear rescued from the burned-out trailer of serial killer Ruby Everheart.

What Wyld, Steiner and Dimante find propels them back into a treacherous and dark past. It shakes what they think they know about who they can trust and who they believe. And it forces them into a lethal showdown, protecting Michael and Jessie Cooper…and themselves, from Ruby Everheart’s terrifying teacher.

Angel Park crackles with insistent, heart-stomping energy as it plummets toward a conclusion that will exact a devastating human toll on one of the three detectives of Sacramento, California’s cold case division. It is Wyld, Steiner and Dimante’s ultimate test, for the depravity of serial killer Ruby Everheart pales against the evil they must now confront.
