Latest Charlie Parker Thriller,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Unquiet: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 6 (Hardcover)
This is John Connollys latest addition to his best selling Charlie Parker series. For those unfamiliar with the books Charlie Parker is a Private Detective with a dark past who frequently gets into cases which have chilling often supernatural edges to them.
This latest book greets the return of the mysterious Collector who readers of Nocturnes may remember from the short story The Reflecting Eye.
This time Charlie Parker along with various friends and other characters are trying to track down a group of paedophiles guilty of various disturbing acts who have gone to ground for years following the killing of one of their victims, this story has alot less of the supernatural in it than some of the other Parker books and is more thriller based.
All around it is a good book and readers of past Parker books can expect the usual great writing, fast moving plot and intriguing characters. This book may not be so much suited to first time readers of the Charlie Parker series as there is alot of references to past books which may seem confusing or irrelevant to those who havent read the series or at least part of it.
Really is a good book for returning readers of the series but if your a first time reader try some of his other books first and see if theyre too your taste if so you'll enjoy this one all the more.
