Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has gone missing. His daughter insists that he killed himself after allegations surfaced that he had betrayed his patients to foul and evil men, but when a killer obsessed with uncovering the truth behind his own daughter's disappearance comes seeking revenge, long-forgotten secrets begin to emerge. Hired by Dr. Clay's daughter to protect her from the predator on the loose, tortured and ingenious private detective Charlie Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth to be revealed and those who will go to any length to keep it hidden.
John Connolly masterfully intertwines secret lives and secret sins with the violence that so often lies beneath the surface of the honeycomb world in this gripping story. Fast-paced, hypnotic, and elegantly written, The Unquiet is John Connolly at his chilling best.

"Connolly is a master of suggestion, creating mood and suspense with ease, and unflinchingly presents a hard-eyed look at the horrors that can lurk in quiet, rustic settings." (Publishers Weekly)
Yes. I find the word use by Connolly to be very evocative and entertaining. Plus, I really like the mix of mystery and other he infuses in his stories.
For the most part. I do find it hard to be totally unbiased as John Connolly is my favorite author and I CAN'T wait for the next book...every book. :-)
He has a great voice and does the different accents and characters in a believable way.
