5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from John Connolly, 3 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wrath of Angels: The Eleventh Charlie Parker Thriller (Hardcover)
If you are a fan of the Charlie Parker series, you'll love this one. A lot of the old "favourites" are here - the collector, Epstein, Louis and Angel, Brightwell. And all the John Connolly trademarks are there - the excellent characters, the creepy plot, the battle of good versus evil (even though the distinction is sometimes a bit blurred) and the humour. I started reading as soon as it was available on my Kindle and could barely put it down until I'd finished it. There's a bit less violence than normal - the characters are growing older - but the suspense remains. This is a great "supernatural" mystery, well-told and well-written.The setting of the book - the dense Maine woods - adds to the atmosphere and the feeling of menace and evil.
If you're new to Charlie Parker and John Connolly I urge you to buy the book anyway. You'll still enjoy it even if some of Charlie Parker's back-story (in particular his friendship with Angel and Louis, and his more troubled relationships with Epstein and the Collector)won't be clear to you. But you will enjoy it so much you will set out to read the previous 10 Charlie Parker stories.
