The Wolf in Winter

The Wolf in Winter

A pulse-pounding thriller featuring Detective Charlie Parker from the bestselling author of The Wrath of Angels.

‘The finest crime series currently in existence’ – Independent on Sunday

His client is dead. But Charlie Parker will not rest . . .

The community of Prosperous, Maine, has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children’s future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own.

The death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him the town and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have faced in their long history, and in the comfortable, sheltered inhabitants of a small Maine town, Parker will encounter his most vicious opponents yet.

Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.

Reviews

Superb . . . this thriller underlines just how fine a writer Connolly has become.
Daily Mail
Skilful at humour and building suspense, Connolly's writing is also poignant and at times downright beautiful
<i>Sunday Business Post</i>
The finest crime series currently in existence
<i>Independent on Sunday</i>
Contains Connolly's usual brilliance with plot, dialogue, setting, humour and writing that is at times poetic
Independent on Sunday
Few thriller writers can create a sense of menace and evil as deftly as Connolly does. Compelling.
<i>Irish Independent</i>
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.
<i>Daily Express</i>
Connolly's writing is poetic, mystical - and almost impossible to put down
<i>Woman & Home</i>
Connolly's writing is a cut above the rest, and the presence of the supernatural on the margins of the story gives it a tense, oppressive edge.
