Probably the best Charlie Parker to date !,
This review is from: The Unquiet (Hardcover)
Charlie Parker the haunted private detective fron John Connolly's previous tales is back in what can only be described as the darkest novel in the series to date.
This is a big read and I polished this book of in two sittings such was force of the storyline. Bringing back charecters from the previous books, villans and hero's alike it does help to have read the earlier Parker novels first.
This book book covers the issues of child abuse and the horror and darkness that surrounds it with a fine touch that does not go into to much detail but at same time will have you thinking for days after, there are people like that out there, we know they are, but there are not enough Charlie Parkers to make things right.
John Connolly has created in Charlie Parker a dark and troubled person, say unlike ( Robert Crais's Elvis Cole), that you can always feel for him and understand why and what he does to solve cases.
A very violent book, crammed with awfull villans that you want them all dead by the last page, but so well written that when you have finished it you are wanting more. Long may Charlie Parker, Angel and Lewis stay with us.
