Beautifully crafted . . . John Connolly's unique ability to successfully combine crime and horror shows no sign of waning. (Irish Independent)
If you like your thrillers with an added undertow of supernatural you can do no better. (The Pool)
Connolly creates complicated plots that never unravel. He's just that good. (Kirkus)
Once you start this book, make sure you've not got anything else important to do for the next few hours . . . The Charlie Parker books have always been a gripping and enthralling read, but this latest one simply won't let you go. (ScifiBulletin)
Another chapter in the life of Charlie Parker and another fascinating read from the pen of the great John Connolly. Here is an author that seems to be totally in control of his writing and at the top of his game. (Shots)
A Game Of Ghosts is layered with such craft that it is almost a disappointment when things resolve themselves with relative quickness, as if you really don't wish to bid some of these characters behind. Even the most dangerous of them. Of course, in Charlie Parker's world, you never can be sure. (Irresistible Targets)
Praise for A TIME OF TORMENT: A TIME OF TORMENT is one of the writer's finest achievements . . . If you are a John Connolly or Charlie Parker fan, a recommendation for this one is unnecessary - you will be adding it to your bedside table. But, as the saying goes: new readers - start here. (Barry Forshaw Independent)
With A TIME OF TORMENT, the series sees possibly its strongest volume yet - if you weren't a fan of Parker before, you will be after reading this. (Mass Movement)
[The] Charlie Parker series . . . never fails to impress . . . it just keeps on getting better and better and increasingly haunting. What began as a particularly atmospheric series of books featuring a wounded character in search of redemption . . . has turned into a major literary triumph . . . Magical, horrific, poetic, gothic. (Maxim Jakubowski Lovereading)
In a consistently excellent series, A TIME OF TORMENT may be the best yet . . . a dizzying, yet assured, ride to hell and back . . . It is a testimony to Connolly's brilliance. (Sunday Herald)
Connolly provides plenty of tension and a genuinely creepy atmosphere that keeps you turning the page to find out what happens next. (Crime Scene)
Connolly's prose is hypnotic and never lets you go. I am saddened that I will have to wait a while for the next book as Connolly is at the top of his form and has me completely hooked. An absolute must-read. (Shots)
The annual thrilling instalment of John Connolly's popular Charlie Parker series.
From the No. 1 Bestselling Author of A TIME OF TORMENT, the fifteenth novel in the 'series of superb novels built around the haunted private detective Charlie Parker' Daily Mail.See all Product description

For me this brought a whole lot of plot lines together and made sense of them. There are clearly still mysteries about Charlie, his friends and associates which are left to be explored in future books but this was a real milestone in the series for me.
My one regret is that with the release schedule some of the details from past books were a little unclear in my own mind so I may go back and reread them.
The series is among the best paranormal tales of all time and a credit to the author who deserves every success he has enjoyed.
Tip: consider rereading some of the recent books before coming at this one if your recollection of the detail is hazy - you'll enjoy this even more.
As usual the tale raises more questions than it answers and leaves me on tenterhooks for the next installment

Not nearly as gripping as previous Charlie Parker novel's and perhaps more melancholy nostalgia...Read more
Again the wait for the next book is greatly anticipated
