Always dark; this one's darker,

This review is from: The Unquiet (Hardcover)
Charlie Parker always seems to find the cases which turn out to haunt him even more - or is it that the cases find him? The Collector is back, his friends in low places, Louis and Angel are back and so are Charlie's daemons.
Yet again John Connolly brings darkness and tragedy to the page. Hunting the killer of an abused young girl, CP almost bites off more than he can handle in the harrowing search for the men who systematically found their prey and carried out their gross acts of horror.
The book moves along with pace and, although Parker never fires a shot in anger, others do and the body count mounts. New readers may not appreciate how The Collector fits into Charlie's life but this shouldn't spoil the storyline. And perhaps, Charlie does, at last, discover and deal with his own problems. Maybe we'll find out for sure in the next book.
