I absolutely loved this book, a fascinating story.

For the first few chapters, The Quiet Road appears to be a run of the mill Detective story as you learn the history of  the starched Chief Superintendent of Police Frankford Lucas and his faithful cat Old Whiskey.  A seemingly normal life of a single man, his path to high position was strangely easy.  He was destined for success in his field while applying little effort to be that way, but the dreams are getting stronger and stronger.

Soon it becomes clear to the reader and to Chief Lucas why this has happened and the story turns far from ordinary.  He narrates his own story as he takes you down The Quiet Road and enlightens all of us on the realities of good versus evil.  With the help of others both sane and not quite so, Detective Lucas follows a road of broken bodies and souls with dreams and desires shattered and seduced by a mysterious and ancient force. From earth to hell, points in between and beyond, Chief Lucas searches desperately for the answers, for his salvation and for the salvation of mankind.

From the Author of Imprint, Annie Frame has once again painstakingly laid out the delicious details in a tale that should become one of the classic writings of our time.  She provides a path for everyone to venture down, however, be forewarned, that The Quiet Road has many detours and pitfalls, and only the purest among us will find the end.
