But there are other forces at work: a troubled young woman who is running from an unseen threat, one that has already taken the life of her boyfriend; and a journalist-turned-writer named Mickey Wallace, who is conducting an investigation of his own. And haunting the shadows, as they have done throughout Parker's life, are two figures: a man and a woman who seem driven to bring an end to Charlie Parker's existence.
Haunting, lyrical, and impossible to put down, The Lovers is John Connolly at his best.

I give this 3 stars not because it isn't good, but because it's abridged. Connolly is such a wonderful writer that abridging his books ought to be illegal. If you've never read Connolly's work, do yourself a favor and buy the unabridged printed book. You don't want to miss a word.
The narrator. Jay O. Sanders is awesome and enthralling in his performance in reading these stories. I feel he is one of the best reading the Charlie Parker books. He differentiates characters and has a lovely voice.
All of it.
All of it.
