You reap what you sew
Someone is after Louis because of something he did as a teenager.
We learn of Louis' childhood and misfortunes that his family went through. Racial hatred was the reason that someone acted in such a manner that changed Louis from a shy teenager into a cold blooded murderer.
In a departure that demonstrates John Connolly's versatility it isn't Charlie Parker who is the protagonist but his friend, Louis. In fact, Parker only makes a tangential appearance in this story.
There is good character development in the story and I particularly enjoyed the character of Willie Brew.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and feel that it would appeal to action thriller fans.
