Charlie Parker investigates the case of his life in this chilling thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author of THE REAPERS
A chilling thriller featuring Detective Charlie Parker from bestselling author John Connolly. Not to be missed for fans of Stephen King and Michael Connelly.
When Charlie Parker was still a boy, his father, a NYPD cop, killed a young couple, a boy and a girl barely older than his son, then took his own life. There was no explanation for his actions.
Stripped of his private investigator's license, and watched by the police, Parker is working in a Portland bar, holding down a job and staying out of trouble. But in the background, he is working on his most personal case yet, an investigation into his own origins and the circumstances surrounding the death of his father, Will.
It is an investigation that will reveal a life haunted by lies, by his mother's loss and his father's betrayal, by secrets kept and loyalties compromised.
And by two figures in the shadows, a man and a woman, with only one purpose: to bring an end to Charlie Parker's existence . . .
An intriguing blend of fast-paced crime fiction and fantasy. — Independent
His latest plot is a clever mixture of quest and chase, written in prose that unfolds at warp speed, and rarely fails to sing. — Observer
You may think at times you are reading a literary novel but then Connolly will remind you he's just as adept at the violent strategies of the thriller. Either way you will be left shaken by the experience. — Daily Express
