The annual thrilling instalment of John Connolly's popular Charlie Parker series.
It is deep winter. The darkness is unending.
The private detective named Jaycob Eklund has vanished, and Charlie Parker is dispatched to track him down. Parker's employer, Edgar Ross, an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has his own reasons for wanting Eklund found.
Eklund is no ordinary investigator. He is obsessively tracking a series of homicides and disappearances, each linked to reports of hauntings. Now Parker will be drawn into Eklund's world, a realm in which the monstrous Mother rules a crumbling criminal empire, in which men strike bargains with angels, and in which the innocent and guilty alike are pawns in a game of ghosts . . .
Parker at his best
Having read all the CP novels, following Parker's ups and downs, strange dealings and even stranger clients, this is one of the best.
Although always brilliant, some of Connelly's Parker stories can be quite heavy going. This on the other hand had a brilliant pace and still great depth - a riveting read! Loved it!
