We’re sad to see him go, but at least he’s going out in style–judging by the slick cover art featured on Rob Hart’s forthcoming thriller, Potter’s Field, the final book in his fan-favorite Ash McKenna series.
Hart first introduced readers to McKenna in New Yorked, which came out back in 2015. Since then, the author has added three more titles–City of Rose, South Village, and The Woman from Prague–to his series, which comes to a close when Potter’s Field comes out next summer.
“A potter’s field is a burial site for unknown or indigent people,” said Rob Hart in an exclusive statement to The Real Book Spy. “Fun fact: It’s also the title of the first novel I ever wrote, which will never see the light of day. It feels fitting to resurrect the title for Ash McKenna’s last ride. It suits the story, in which Ash returns home to find the demons he ran away from are still waiting for him.”
“This is the end of a journey, and readers will find out in July 2018 exactly what I mean by that.”

The final book in Rob Hart’s acclaimed Ash McKenna series shows that Ash can go home again…but it might cost him everything.
Amateur private investigator Ash McKenna is home. After more than a year on the road he’s ready to face the demons he ran away from in New York City. And he’s decided what he wants to do with his life: Become a private investigator, for real. Licensed and everything. No more working as a thug for hire. But within moments of stepping off the plane, Ginny Tonic, the drag queen crime lord who once employed him―and then tried to have him killed―asks to see him.
One of her newest drag queen soldiers has gone missing, and Ginny suspects she’s been ensnared by the burgeoning heroin scene on Staten Island. Ginny wants Ash to find her. Because he’s the best, and because he knows Staten Island, his home borough. Ash is hesitant―but Ginny’s offer of $10,000 is enough to get him on his feet. And the thought of a lost kid and a bereft family is too much for him to bear.
He accepts, and quickly learns there’s something much bigger at play. Some very dangerous people are vying for control of the heroin trade on Staten Island, which is recording the highest rate of overdose deaths in the city. As Ash navigates deadly terrain, he find his most dangerous adversary might be his own past. Because those demons he ran away from have been waiting for him to come back.
The Woman from Prague was probably Hart’s best work to date, and one of this summer’s most underrated thrillers. Fans anxious to get their hands on the final Ash McKenna thriller can pre-order Rob Hart’s Potter’s Field by clicking here!
